The John Fraser Ramsey Award is one of the pre-eminent student awards at the University of Alabama, and was the first University-wide endowed award. Click here for the UofA Premier Awards site.
This web site is not just about the award, however. It is about the man who inspired the award, Dr. John Fraser Ramsey. Without Doc, there would never have been the collection of friends, students, and colleagues who so treasured him that they were moved to establish this award to commemorate the life of this remarkable man.
As you browse this site, be open to the insights to be gained from knowing something of John Ramsey. Read his letters, the tributes rendered on his retirement and at his death, and, most of all, the reminiscences of those who benefited from knowing him.
The award has had the desired effect: students who never knew Dr. Ramsey have received the award, been inducted into the "Ramsey Family" and have been profoundly affected.
Visit often; Doc would welcome you any time.
