The Lathrop Award


The Thomas G. Lathrop Award

The Thomas G. Lathrop Awards for excellence in mathematics and computer science were established jointly by the mathematics and computer science departments at Salem State University in honor of Professor Thomas G. Lathrop of the mathematics department. Professor Lathrop, who died in November 1978, was active in teaching computer courses and in the establishment of the first computer science laboratory at Salem State. The award has been presented annually since 1980 to at least one mathematics major and one computer Science major.

The first Lathrop Award ceremony took place on Monday, May 5, 1980. The award recipients were Den J. Set, a mathematics major and computer science minor, and Philip Callahan, a bachelor of general studies graduate whose course of study combined concentrations in art and computer science.
