The Professor Samuel M. Levin Endowed Award Fund was created by donations to the university to honor the distinguished educational leadership and scholarly contributions of the late Professor Emeritus Samuel M. Levin. Among his many books is Malthus and the Conduct of Life (1967). He was also the author of many essays on education, labor, population, and technology.
Professor Levin served the university and its predecessor institutions for 43 years. Initially in charge of all Social Science teaching at the College of the City of Detroit (later, Wayne University), he was the first Chairman of the Department of Economics, a position he occupied until 1953. His papers are collected in the Reuther Archives of the University.
Each year, the Fund gives out two awards and hosts a lecture. The first award is the Samuel M. Levin Economics Award and it is given to the author of an essay on economics. The second award is the Samuel M. Levin Economics Scholarship and it is given to a current graduate student in the Department of Economics.
