ISHPSSB David L. Hull Prize
Reminder of the Deadline for Nominations and
Request for Financial Support

This is a reminder about the approaching deadline 
for nominations for the first David L. Hull Prize 
for History, Philosophy, and Social Studies of 
Biology, honoring extraordinary scholarship and 
service promoting connections among the 
communities represented by our Society.  The 
Prize commemorates the life of David Hull, who 
exemplified both a high standard of 
interdisciplinary scholarship and exemplary 
service that helped to build bridges among our 
disciplines; it is scheduled to be awarded at the 
2011 meeting of ISHPSSB in Salt Lake City.  The 
David L. Hull Prize consists of a Medal 
recognizing the recipient's contributions to 
scholarship and service.

A complete nomination package consists of two 
letters of nomination, each signed by at least 
one member of ISHPPSSB (thus there must be at 
least two nominators) and a current curriculum 
vitae of the candidate.  The deadline for 
nominations is now very near: it is 1 January, 
2011.  Nominations should be sent to the Chair of 
the David L. Hull Prize Committee, preferably by 
email to [log in to unmask], but alternatively by 
land mail to
Richard Burian, Chair
David L. Hull Prize Committee
Department of Philosophy - 0126

The Society also requests contributions in honor 
of David Hull and in support of this prize.  We 
will obtain a long-term supply of a very 
attractive medal and hope to build a small fund 
to be used appropriately.  Contributions can be 
made by scrolling to the bottom of the Society's 
membership page, 
.  There you will find donation buttons for 
student travel and the David L. Hull Prize, and 
buttons to obtain reduced-rate subscriptions to 
some of the major journals in some of our 
disciplines.  (You can also use this page to 
become a member of the Society, extend your 
membership, and/or revise your address
