Fred Hartmann Award

The Hartmann Award is named after Dr. Frederick H. Hartmann, a distinguished international relations scholar born in 1922 in New York City who received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1949.  Dr. Hartmann, who taught many years at the University of Florida, the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, and a host of other public and private institutions, including overseas, produced a dozen books on international relations and foreign policy, including student texts. His definition of "international relations" was included in UNESCO's Social Science Dictionary published in 1965. Having served on several national and state committees and boards of higher education and as a Captain in the U.S. Naval Reserve, Dr. Hartmann retired from the Naval War College as Alfred Thayer Mahan Professor Emeritus.
