Undergraduate History student James Mawdesley awarded the Andrew Pearson Prize

Date: 15 July 2010

The Department of History is pleased to announce that James Mawdesley has been awarded the Andrew Pearson Prize.

The Andrew Pearson Prize was set up in memory of Andrew Pearson, a student of History (1985-88) who was tragically killed in an accident when on holiday in New Zealand. His employer, National Power, has generously made a donation to fund an annual prize. A cheque for £150 will therefore be awarded each summer to the single major History student who, in the opinion of the Part II board of examiners in History, has written the best dissertation for the compulsory dissertation unit (HIST 300). The prize was first awarded in 2000.
