The SUSAN ANTHONY POTTER PRIZES – GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE:
These prizes were instituted in 1908 by Professor Murray Anthony Potter in memory of his mother, Susan Anthony Potter, and endowed in 1957 through a bequest of his wife, Bessie Lincoln Potter. The income from the fund is to be used to provide prizes for students in the Departments of Comparative Literature and Romance Languages and Literatures, such income to be divided equally between the two departments. By the terms of the bequest, two prizes in Comparative Literature are offered. One prize is offered for the best essay by a student (graduate or undergraduate) in Harvard University on any subject in the field of Comparative Literature. Another prize is open only to undergraduates in Harvard College for an essay “on some subject of Comparative Literature drawn from the Middle Ages or the Renaissance.”
