Book of Appreciation for Williams

On March 9, 2009, the Undergraduate English Association, on behalf of Hillel and the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching, honored English Professor Ralph Williams with the first ever Golden Apple Lifetime Achievement Award. In Professor Williams' honor, we will be putting together a Book of Appreciation. Please submit your memories, first impressions, and/or unforgettable quotes to ueawilliams@umich.edu. So that everyone can be included, please limit your responses to two double-spaced pages in a .doc format. We still have room available for responses, so submit them before April 1st, and we'll be sure to get them into the book (which will be presented to Professor Williams on April 21st). Any questions about the opportunities to honor Professor Williams, contact ueawilliams@umich.edu.
