Recognizing accomplishments in research and the education and development of future engineers, this medal honors Gordon Maskew Fair, a professor of sanitary engineering at Harvard University, who achieved exceptional results in preparing students for the water environment profession.
Beyond the purely technical information, Dr. Fair imparted to his students a desire for environmental harmony and taught them to use their engineering skills toward the realization of that end. His insight into the capabilities, as well as the limitations, of current knowledge in the field of sanitary engineering, now known as environmental engineering, inspired students to conduct research and investigation into important emerging areas of concern. This medal commemorates Dr. Fair's contributions and likewise that of our most outstanding fellow educators.
Frequency of Award: The Fair Distinguished Engineering Educator Medal is presented annually.
