Donald Tugby (1920-2015) was an alumnus and major supporter of UQ, having established prizes in biomedical sciences, archaeology, anthropology, psychology of peace, art history and musicology, veterinary science, and earth science. The Donald Tugby Postgraduate Archaeological Research Prize was established in 2010 and maintained by the income of an endowment gift from Dr Tugby, who taught Anthropology at The University of Queensland from 1958 to 1986. Dr Tugby introduced statistics to Archaeology and initiated extensive archaeological fieldwork on North Stradbroke Island. The prize is to encourage and reward research excellence in Archaeology by facilitating postgraduate student participation in the global archaeological research community.
