Executive Committee approves a donation to the ASCSA William Sanders Scarborough Fellowship Fund
The Executive Committee has approved a proposal from the Committee on Diversity and Inclusion to donate $500 to the newly created William Sanders Scarborough Fellowship Fund at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. The funds will come from the Masciantonio Fund in support of the William Sanders Scarborough Fellowship which is intended to make the American School’s programs and facilities more accessible to a broader community of students and scholars. Not only was Scarborough invited to join CAMWS at its inception (the papers are in the Scarborough archives at Wilberforce University, America’s first HBCU), but also the leading scholar of the Scarborough achievement is CAMWS Consularis Michele Ronnick (See also her article "The African American Classicist William Sanders Scarborough (1852-1926) and the Early Days of CAMWS." (CJ 97.3 ): 263-266; https://www.jstor.org/stable/3298097?seq=1). Her publication last year of his seminal textbook, First Lessons in Greek, also includes a preface by another CAMWS Consularis, Ward Briggs.
