One of the PhD students in History, Ian Mosby, has recently won the 2010 Mullins Prize,
awarded by the Society for Social Studies of Science (4S), for his paper, "That Won-Ton Soup Headache': The Chinese Restaurant Syndrome, MSG and the Making of American Food, 1968-1980". Ian received the award last month at the Society's annual conference in Tokyo. (A photo of the presentation is posted on the Society's website [http://www.4sonline.org/ee/4S10/target69.html], even though it's not the best quality.)
This is a very prestigious award, and the Department of History congratulates Ian on this great achievement.
