Top college professor

A few days ago the Journal reported on the Cherry Teaching Award, which has nothing to do with fruit and everything to do with teaching. The article discusses the tension between teaching and research or other service at the collegiate level.

It also profiles 3 candidates for the Cherry award this year. Elliott West is 64, Edward Burger is 45, and Roger Rosenblatt is 69. See a pattern?
