Marjorie Phillips was the first woman at Indiana University to be given the prestigious Frederic Bachman Lieber Award for distinguished teaching. Serving on the university committee for the Improvement of Teaching, as well as being widely renowned for her publications and her unusual research abilities, her contributions to Indiana University were invaluable.
