Dr William Walker, Assistant Professor of History at SUNY Oneonta’s Cooperstown Graduate Program (CGP), has been awarded the 2013 Richard Siegfried Junior Faculty Prize for Academic Excellence.

A 2013 recipient of the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching, Walker teaches courses in oral history, public history, American social and cultural history, as well as the history of museums, a two-year master’s degree program in history museum studies offered through a unique partnership between SUNY Oneonta and the New York State Historical Association.

The Siegfried Prize recognizes a non-tenured faculty member for outstanding academic achievement outside the classroom. The award is made possible by a gift from Alice Siegfried to the College at Oneonta Foundation in memory of her husband, theater Professor Richard K. Siegfried, who taught at the college from 1958 to 1995.

Dr. William Walker will deliver the 19th annual Richard Siegfried Lecture, “Telling Diverse Stories of American Life at the Smithsonian,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday December 5th in the Craven Lounge of the Morris Conference Center. Admission to the event is free, and community members are invited to attend the presentation and the dessert reception that precedes it at 7 p.m
