Introduction

Created by the Board of Governors of the Georgetown University Alumni Association on December 3, 1950, the John Carroll Award was created to honor distinguished members of its alumni community. The inaugural dinner was held before nearly 400 guests at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington on April 26, 1952.

In his introduction that evening, Alumni Association president Thomas Egan, College Class of 1917, remarked that "We are gathered together this evening to honor the memory of Georgetown's founder and at the same time to pay fitting tribute to Georgetown men, who by their lives and their accomplishments have reflected great credit on the University." (The first woman to receive the award was not until 1957.)

The John Carroll Awards are unique for its geographic diversity. The first awards dinner held outside Washington was in 1954. In 1966, the awards made its first trip west to California, and in 1993 London hosted the first international awards. A total of 33 different cities have hosted the awards.

As of 2017, the total count of John Carroll awardees is 382. The awards count among its own a U.S. President, a prince, three bishops, four generals, eight college presidents, and over 200 former members of the Board of Governors of the Georgetown University Alumni Association. The youngest recipient of the award was retired Congressman John Dingell Jr., who received the award at the age of 32 in 1959. The oldest recipient of the award was philanthropist Dorothy Leavey, who received the award at the age of 94 in 1992.

The awards have been presented to alumni as far back as the Class of 1901 and as recent as the Class of 1990. The undergraduate class of 1968 accounts for 14 former John Carroll recipients.

About This Site

Dear Readers:

Two years ago, while researching the history of the Board of Governors, I came across a number of interesting names of past John Carroll Award winners. But it's more than just a list of names.

The John Carroll Awards have never been Georgetown's version of a "hall of fame". From its outset, the awards have been an opportunity to recognize those alumni within the Georgetown community who have led by example in the service of alma mater and of their larger community.

Awards are, by nature, a measure of recognition. But with recognition should come a sense of reflection on the accomplishments of those that came before us. In most cases, the awardees of the past, giants in their time, are forgotten today.

This site is an opportunity to remember some of these men and women for being the shoulders today's alumni community stand on. There are so many of these stories--a lawyer who helped build a hospital for African Americans in the segregated South, a doctor that sailed the seas to care for indigent communities, or maybe just someone who made sure that more students from their area could afford to attend Georgetown and change some lives in the process. These are stories worth telling.

By sheer volume, this was a lot more than I bargained for. Not every award winner has a biography on Wikipedia, and many died long ago. Georgetown's records on these individuals is, at best, limited. Yet some of the accomplishments of those you don't know are more impactful than the names you know. When we take the time to remember those who walked along the Hilltop before us, who took the classes and came back to make the Georgetown experience a better one for those who followed, we not only honor who they were, but acknowledge as we will one day join them, we do not want our days to be any less forgotten.

The John Carroll Awards are a moveable feast--they have been held in as simple as a motor inn in Bridgeport, CT and as opulent as Guildhall in London, as seen in the photo above. Wherever they are, and wherever they will go, it is an opportunity to connect Georgetown's remarkable past with its exciting future. As the future of Georgetown reaches "horizons beyond our vision", let's not forget who took the steps to take us there.

Please enjoy the site and know that with any reliance on Internet reaearch, there may be mistakes in dates, in times, and in omissions. Please contact me at 84hoya @ gmail.com if you see an error and I'll make sure to get it addressed.
