Moeur Award

The Moeur Award was named for Dr. B. B. Moeur, who was a physician and businessman in Tempe in the early 1900s. His business ventures included being president of the Southside Electric Light and Gas Co. and a partnership in the Tempe Hardware Co. on Mill Avenue. Dr. Moeur was always involved in politics, including 8 years on the Tempe School Board and served as a member of the Board of Education of the Tempe Normal School (predecessor of Arizona State University). As Governor of Arizona from 1933-1937, he provided leadership in the Great Depression. You may have been in the Moeur Building named for him on the campus directly next door to the Student Services building.

Since 1901, the Alumni Assoc. has presented the Moeur Award to those graduates with the highest academic standing who have completed their course work toward their degree while attending ASU with 8 consecutive fall and spring semesters.
