David E. Barclay Endowed Scholarship in History

Alumni, current and retired faculty and staff, and friends of the College have established the David E. Barclay Endowed Scholarship in History to honor Dr. Barclay and his 43 years at the College. Professors of History Emeriti David Strauss and John Wickstrom were the driving forces behind the fundraising initiative to create this scholarship.  

Dr. Barclay devoted his professional life to researching, writing and teaching European history. As a scholar, he achieved national and international distinction for his work in modern German history. He shared his achievements in those fields with several generations of students while working tirelessly to expand the influence of the History Department at K.  

The David E. Barclay Endowed Scholarship in History will be awarded every year to a junior or senior history major or minor who demonstrates exemplary capacity for and commitment to scholarly work in the department.
