O’BRIEN’S RESARCH INTO THE PAST EARNS ANOTHER HONOR
O’Brien, who joined UH in 1977, has garnered numerous accolades, including the Conference on Latin American History Book Prize and the Robertson Prize for best article in the Hispanic American Historical Review. Now, he adds another accomplishment — the John and Rebecca Moores Professor — to his vitae.
One professor wrote in a letter of support, “What makes his achievement almost singular is the comparable command he brings to his understanding of U.S. international history, particularly as it pertains to business and economics.”
The John and Rebecca Moores Professor is a five-year renewable award given to faculty who are outstanding in teaching, research and service. The recipient is awarded a $10,000 annual stipend.
