Alexander Badawy Chair in Egyptian Art and Archaeology

A professor emeritus of art history at UCLA, the late ALEXANDER BADAWY was a noted scholar of ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern architecture. Soon after making his generous commitment to Hopkins, he retired to Alexandria, Egypt. Dr. Badawy endowed this chair to attract to Johns Hopkins a faculty member whose research and work would “parallel that of Egyptian philology so well illustrated by my colleague Professor Hans Goedicke.” Dr. Goedicke, professor emeritus of Near Eastern Studies at Hopkins, is an historian of Egypt and author of many books, including Near Eastern Studies: In Honor of William Foxwell Albright.
