The T.R. Higgins Lectureship Award is named for Theodore R. Higgins, Ph.D., AISC director of engineering and research from 1944-1968, who was widely acclaimed for his many contributions to the advancement of engineering technology related to fabricated structural steel. The award honors Higgins for his innovative engineering, timely technical papers and distinguished lectures.


Each year since 1972 the award has recognized an outstanding lecturer and author whose technical papers are considered an outstanding contribution to the engineering literature on fabricated structural steel. The first presentation of each new Higgins Lecture takes place at NASCC: The Steel Conference. Following NASCC, the Higgins Lecture is presented at a variety of venues around the U.S.
