Awards Honoring Henry A. Millon & Giles Constable

From the early years of the Foundation’s Venetian program, noted scholars Henry A. Millon and Giles Constable served with great distinction on the Venetian Advisory Board (VAB) for the Delmas Foundation. This Board has significantly shaped the Foundation’s Venetian program through generously contributing advice and expertise over the decades. The program has been highly significant in expanding knowledge and awareness of the importance of Venice in the historical record.

Henry A. Millon Award in Art and Architectural History

Upon Dr. Millon’s retirement from the VAB in 2015, the Foundation Trustees created the Henry A. Millon Award in Art and Architectural History. One recipient is selected annually from the U.S. applicant pool for the Venetian Research Program.  Selection criteria emphasize distinguished work on issues of art and architecture in Venice and its surroundings.    There is no separate application for this award. 

Henry A. Millon (1927-2018) was an accomplished scholar of Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture.  He graduated from Tulane University and received his Ph.D. from Harvard where he studied urban design, architecture, and art history. Millon taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1955-2003) where he co-founded the History, Theory, and Criticism section of the Department of Architecture and helped to make it one of the leading Ph.D. programs in the US.   Millon’s contributions to the history of art were many and varied.  An indefatigable author, editor and collaborator, he was founding dean of the Center for Advanced Studies at the National Gallery of Art (1979-2000) where he also played a major role in organizing important exhibitions, including the much celebrated “Renaissance architecture from Brunelleschi to Michaelangelo.”

Giles Constable Award

Prof. Constable served on the VAB through 2020. Upon his passing, the Foundation Trustees created the Giles Constable Award. One recipient is selected annually from the U.S. applicant pool for the Venetian Research Program. There is no separate application for this award. 

Giles Constable (1929-2021), was a prolific author of more than twenty books on a wide array of medieval subjects including monastic tithes, Byzantium power, the 12th century reformation and crusades, the history of Cluny, and many more.   Often described as a “giant” in his field, Constable attended Harvard University (A.B., 1950; Ph.D. 1957) and Cambridge University .  He taught at the University of Iowa (1955-58) and Harvard (1958-1984), and directed the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library (1977 to 1984). Constable joined the faculty of the Institute of Advanced Study’s School for Historical Studies in 1985 and became Professor Emeritus in 2003. His many honors included a Guggenheim Fellowship and membership in the Institut de France, British Academy, and the Royal Historical Society.
