Professor Receives Hugo G. Rodeck Award of Excellence

Dr. Peter Tirrell, adjunct professor for the College of Liberal Studies and associate director of the Sam Noble Museum of Natural History in Norman, was named the 2011 recipient of the Mountain-Plains Museums Association’s Hugo G. Rodeck Award of Excellence for his service to the museum field.

The regional award recognizes his work at the museum. Recipients are noted for their contributions to the field of state, provincial and local history, art, anthropology or natural history.

“I was a maverick,” Tirrell said in a press release. “They allowed me to test out my ideas. It is the association’s friendly, nurturing environment that helped shape my life.”

The College of Liberal Studies is a fully accredited academic unit of the University of Oklahoma, offering 100% online, hybrid and onsite bachelor's and master's degrees for working adults and non-traditional students.
