Fulbright's Carl Vogt Receives Williams College's Kellogg Award
Carl Vogt, former senior partner and partner-in-charge of Fulbright & Jaworski's Washington office, was presented the Kellogg Life-Time Achievement Award from Williams College, Vogt's alma mater. The Kellogg Award is given every year to an outstanding alum of the liberal arts college, Williams College, located in Williamstown, Massachusetts. In 2002 Williams College named their building, which houses the college's alumni relations office, "The Carl W. Vogt '58 House" in honor of Vogt's serving as the College's fifteenth president.
Marking the 21st year of the Kellogg Award, this award is named after James C. Kellogg, a member of the Williams College Class of 1937. Kellogg later became chairman of the New York Stock Exchange in 1956. Among the many notable recipients of the Kellogg Award is John W. Toland, Pulitzer prize-winning author of The Rising Sun and Williams graduate.
Vogt also recently gave the commencement address at Monmouth College, a liberal arts college in Monmouth, Illinois, where he was presented an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters.
Extolling the rewards of a liberal arts degree, Vogt said, "The mind fully activated will never rest. The learning process and the example of intellectual vigor and dedication and commitment to excellence has been with me through all my life. It infected my mind with curiosity."
