Audrey L. Hale Prize, 1995


The Audrey L. Hale Prize, established in 1995 in honor of Audrey L. Hale, H1995, for forty-seven years of extraordinary service to Tufts University, including fourteen years as assistant provost, is to be awarded to an undergraduate student in the junior or senior year who has demonstrated academic excellence and a commitment to international understanding through acts of compassion and humanity. The recipient, who is able to achieve his/her educational goals through personal and financial sacrifice, will be determined and recommended by the dean of students.

Audrey Louise Hale joined Tufts as a secretary in 1947 after graduating from Fisher College. Her first job was in the Office of Veterans Affairs helping the veterans who returned to college on the G.I. Bill after World War II. In 1952, she transferred to the office of the first provost, John P. Tilton, and has worked with every provost since. She was appointed Assistant Provost by Sol Gittleman.

Audrey Hale and her husband have been active in various host family programs at Tufts for over twenty-five years, particularly those of the International Office and, more recently, the Fletcher Host Family Program.

Audrey Hale received the Alumni Association's highest award, the Distinguished Service Award, in 1968, and an honorary Bachelor of Arts from Tufts upon her retirement in 1995. She served on many committees and enjoyed taking courses and being involved with Faculty Club programs. As a result of trips to Europe, the Far East, Central, and South America, her interest in the international programs at Tufts grew. The students she and her husband have come to know through the International Office programs have enriched their lives immensely and she hopes the yearly prize will reward many wonderful students in the future.
