HAMILTON MEDAL: William V. Campbell ’62, chairman of the board of Intuit, Inc., will receive the 2000 Alexander Hamilton Medal at a black tie dinner to be held in Low Library Rotunda on Thursday, Nov. 16.

Campbell was captain of Columbia’s football team in 1961, when it shared the Ivy League championship with Harvard — the only time Columbia has finished atop the Ivies. Although he weighed only 175 pounds, he was a three-year starter at offensive guard who was described by his coach, Buff Donelli, as “the best captain I ever had.” In a 1974 interview, Donelli said of Campbell: “He’s a person who’s made more of an imprint on people who know him than anyone I’ve known.”

Campbell served as Columbia’s head football coach from 1974 through 1979. He worked for J. Walter Thompson, a New York-based advertising agency, and Eastman Kodak before joining Apple Computer in 1983 as vice president of marketing. He was Apple’s executive vice president, group executive of the United States, when he left the company in 1987 to launch the Claris Corp., a software company later acquired by Apple. He was president and CEO of the Go Corp., a pen-based computing software company, from 1991 until it was acquired by AT&T in 1994.

Campbell then joined Intuit as president and CEO, assuming the role of chairman of the board of directors in August 1998. During his tenure as CEO, Intuit’s market value rose from $500 million to $11 billion as the company solidified its position as a leader in tax, personal finance and small business accounting software. Intuit is perhaps best-known for Quicken, the best-selling personal finance management software.

The Columbia College Alumni Association presents the Alexander Hamilton Medal to an alumnus or faculty member for distinguished service and accomplishment in any field of endeavor.

AWARDED: Jonathan Rosand ’88 was awarded the 2000 American Academy of Neurology Founders Award for Clinical Research by a Junior Member. Rosand, a physician at Massachusetts General Hospital and a fellow in critical care neurology at Harvard Medical School, received the award for his investigations into hemorrhagic strokes brought on by the use of the anti-clotting drug Warfarin. Rosand’s research seeks to identify those at risk from the drug in the hope that it can be used more widely.

NOMINATED: Beyond the Narrow Gate: The Journey of Four Chinese Women from the Middle Kingdom to Middle America by Leslie Chang ’92 was selected as a finalist for the PEN/Martha Albrand Award for First Nonfiction. Chang’s book chronicles the lives of four Chinese women (including her mother) who fled China and their adjustment to life in America. PEN, a membership association of prominent literary writers and editors, presents the award annually to a distinguished book of general nonfiction by an American writer.

HONORED: On May 13, Saint Xavier University in Chicago awarded Marshall B. Front ’58 an honorary doctor of public service degree “in recognition of his outstanding career accomplishments and his exemplary service to the community.” Front, who is chairman of Front Barnett Associates LLC in Chicago, is a former member of the College’s Board of Visitors and a former director of the Columbia College Alumni Association.

CORRECTIONS: In the listing of the new CCAA Board published in the May issue, Robert Fischbein ’60’s year of graduation was listed incorrectly and Colin Redhead ’85’s name was misspelled. CCT regrets these errors.
