Beta Theta Pi Oxford Cup

In 1983, the Board of Trustees agreed to establish an award that would recognize Betas of achievement. In 1984, President Peter E. Van de Water, St. Lawrence ’58, and General Secretary B. Hume Morris, Centre ’68, developed the Oxford Cup. Brother Morris wrote the award ceremony known as the Oxford Cup Ritual and designed the cup, which is a smaller version of the Loving Cup presented to John Reily Knox, Miami 1839 and his wife on their golden wedding anniversary.
