Award Named in Honor of C.L. Baker

The Linguistic Society of the America has established a syntax prize in memory of our late colleague, Lee Baker. Lee was a distinguished syntactician and a very effective department chair. He arrived at UT in 1968 and remained on the faculty until his death in 1997.

The Department is very grateful to Mary Baker and to all Lee's family for their gift to the LSA in support of excellent scholarship in syntax.
