Honouring Gavin Cameron: Economist and Econometrician
Gavin Cameron was an outstanding applied econometrician, held in high esteem by those he worked alongside, collaborated with and taught.
Gavin passed away after a battle with illness in 2007 and both he and the passion and rigour he bought to research and teaching have been deeply missed.
In 2017 to perpetuate his memory and give inspiration to others from his achievements and courage, it was decided to create a prize for the best student in the undergraduate final year econometrics paper. The prize is for £200 for each of the next ten years. Further details about the Memorial Prize can be found here.
For those who wish to make a donation to the Memorial Prize Fund, the Department of Economics have created a dedicated Giving Page here.
In 2018 the inaugural prize was won jointly by Ellen Kennedy, Magdalen College (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) and Daniel Mead, St John’s College (History and Economics).
