Theodore Herfurth and Teddy Kubly Awards for Initiative and Efficiency

A generous grant from the Herfurth and Kubly family allows for awards to seniors who made the maximum use of their time at UW-Madison, demonstrating productivity in the classroom and the community. Among the oldest awards presented at UW-Madison, the Theodore Herfurth award for a senior man was introduced in 1928, followed by the Teddy Kubly award for a senior woman in 1943.
