University of Oregon president emeritus Dave Frohnmayer, of-counsel attorney with the Eugene-based firm Harrang Long Gary Rudnick, recently received the James B. Conant Award of Merit in Education from Delta Upsilon International Fraternity.

The award is named in honor of Conant, a pioneer in the field of education who was an American chemist, president of Harvard College and a member of Delta Upsilon. The men’s fraternity is committed to service, leadership development and personal growth.

Frohnmayer received the honor in Indianapolis in early August, in recognition of his contributions to higher education.

Frohnmayer, president of the university from 1994 to 2009, formerly served as dean of the UO School of Law, as attorney general and as a member of the Oregon House of Representatives. He is also a professor in the university's School of Law.

He is a founding director of the National Marrow Donor Program, a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a national prize-winning author on the U.S. Constitution, a magna cum laude graduate from Harvard College and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University. He received his law degree from the University of California at Berkeley.
