Oliver Williamson, the Edgar F. Kaiser Professor of Business Administration, was recently bestowed three significant honors. He was named an Honorary Editor of the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization (his biography appears in the April 2002 issue).
On June 10, the current president of the Academy of International Business, Donald Lessard, advised Williamson that he is also the sixth person to be elected as an Eminent Scholar of the Fellows of the Academy of International Business. Coincidentally on June 10, Williamson was one of three speakers at the 20th year celebration of the 1982 Merger Guidelines at the Department of Justice in Washington DC, presenting a paper entitled, “The Merger Guidelines of the US Department of Justice – In Perspective.” The audience included current and former officials and members of the Antitrust Division of the US Department of Justice and of the Federal Trade Commission, as well as members of the Washington DC antitrust bar.
Professor Emeritus James M. Carman, along with co-author Luis V. Dominguez of Florida Atlantic University, was awarded the Charles C. Slater Memorial Prize in June for the article, “Organizational Transformations in Transition Economies: Hypotheses.” The paper was recognized for making the most significant contribution to the field, published within the last two volumes of the Journal of Macromarketing. This is the second time Professor Carman has received this award. The first time was in 1997, for an article co-authored with Professor Emeritus Robert G. Harris entitled, “Public Regulation of Marketing Activities.”
