Dr. Patrick Nugent (PhD, 2016) was awarded the 2017 SACRPH John Reps Prize for best doctoral dissertation in American city and regional planning history for his dissertation, “The Urban Environmental Order: Planning and Politics in New York City’s ‘Last Frontier.’”
The Society for American City and Regional Planning History (SACRPH) was founded in 1986. This leading organization promotes scholarship on the planning of cities and metropolitan regions over time, and bridges the gap between the study of cities and the practice of urban planning. Dr. Nugent is currently the Deputy Director of the C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience at Washington College. Please join us in congratulating Dr. Nugent!
