Alex Elias Memorial Prize Scholarship, 1966

Alex Elias Memorial Prize Scholarship, 1966

The Alex Elias Memorial Prize Scholarship, established in 1966 by the Brotherhood of Alpha Epsilon Pi and friends of Alex Elias within and outside the university, is awarded to that junior or senior who best displays those high standards in community activities and in athletic and scholastic pursuits for which Alex Elias was well known.

Alexander Elias, member of the class of 1967, was born July 24, 1945. He died on October 19, 1966, from injuries sustained a week earlier in a motor scooter accident near his home in Watertown. He was gregarious, sensitive and quick-witted with a great sense of humor and a zest for life. He was accepted by the Big Brothers Association, but never had a chance to serve as an older brother.

While at Watertown High School, he was an outstanding baseball player, a member of the varsity football team, and the basketball team. In fall of 1963 he was awarded the Hoyt-Thurber Memorial Trophy for outstanding student athlete, as well as the George "Koko" Gorgodian Memorial Trophy. He entered Tufts and majored in political science in preparation for a career in law. A power-hitter and strong fielder, he was starting first baseman for the varsity baseball team and was one of Tufts' most popular athletes. He was active in the Leonard Carmichael Society and House Chairman of Alpha Epsilon Pi. His fraternity brothers established the Alexander Elias Memorial Scholarship Fund as a living testimony to his memory.
