Awards & Honors


Chester P. Middlesworth Award

School David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library · 2019 The Middlesworth Awards were established to encourage and recognize excellence of analysis, research and writing by Duke University students in the use of primary sources and rare materials held by the Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. Funding for the awards was provided by Chester P. Middlesworth (A.B., 1949) of Statesville, N.C. There are two to three awards given annually. Each award carries a cash prize of $1,000. Michael received this award in the Fall of 2019 in recognition of research he developed in Jennifer Knust's "Christian Manuscript Culture" seminar in the Spring of 2019. This research culminated in the paper: “P. Duke Inv. 664R: A Fragmentary Alchemical Handbook.” More about this award
