The Mary Collar Explicator Prize

The Mary Collar English Explicator Prize was established by Mitchell and Belinda Stapley to recognize the invaluable support and mentorship Belinda Stapley (’83) and her daughter Emma Stapley (’16) received from Dr. Collar while at Albion College. The award is intended to further Dr. Collar’s contributions to fostering a passion for literary criticism in many students at Albion by recognizing an outstanding piece of written literary analysis produced in a literature course during a student’s junior year.
