Benjamin Smith Reynolds Award for Excellence in Teaching 

Benjamin Smith Reynolds, manufacturer, was born and educated in Wisconsin. After he and Charles F. Burgess incorporated the Burgess Battery Company in 1917, Reynolds devoted his life to that company, its later affiliates, and the Research Products Corporation. From 1948 until his death in 1954, Reynolds was a member of the university's Board of Visitors. As a fitting memorial and as a symbol of Reynolds' belief in the power of new ideas for industry development, this award is presented to the faculty member who contributes most to the instruction of engineering students.
