The Shapiro Writing Contest is named for and supported by funds established by Dr. Edward Shapiro, Professor Emeritus in Economics, who retired from the University of Toledo in 1989 after 22 years of service. An undergraduate of UT, he went on to obtain an M.A. from Ohio State University and Ph.D. from Harvard. Dr. Shapiro donated this money to recognize and reward future UT students in what he regarded as the craft of good writing.
