Gilbert DeBartolo worked with Professor Robert Haveman to write a paper that subsequently was published in the American Economic Review. Gilbert viewed that experience of doing mentored original research as one of the highlights of his Grinnell career. After his untimely death, his family established this award to recognize students who take advantage of similar opportunities to do supervised original research, whose quality we hope is recognized beyond the campus.

The Horn-Theophilus Award was established by the Class of 1951 to recognize and pay tribute to two of its members, Willard Horn and David Theophilus, who died in action as Marine Corps officers during the Korean War. The Class of 1951 honors the service of these two economics majors. It similarly wants to recognize current graduating economics majors who have made service to others a part of their Grinnell College career and who plan to maintain that commitment in the future.
