COLLEGEVILLE — The Council of the British Academy has bestowed the Edward Ullendorff Medal upon Getatchew Haile of The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) at St. John’s University, Collegeville.
The cataloguer emeritus of Oriental manuscripts and Regents Professor of Medieval Studies will receive the award Nov. 14 at Carlton House Terrace in London. The ceremony will include the Academy’s other annual prizewinners.
Haile studied theology at the Coptic Theological College, Cairo, social sciences at the American University, also in Cairo, and Semitic philology at the Eberhard-Karls-Univertitat, Tubingen, Germany.
Haile is a corresponding fellow of the British Academy, winner of the MacArthur Foundation Award and member of the Academy of Social Sciences of Addis Ababa University.
The Edward Ullendorff Medal is awarded for scholarly distinction and achievements in the field of Semitic languages or Ethiopian studies.
Tuebingen was my University. Getachew Haile, what contributon did he do when it comes to other semetic langauges that are about to die or died and resurrected such as Harari and Argoba?
Is this old man not the racist and narrow-minded hater who on daily basis disseminates his venomous propaganda against certain ethnic groups in Ethiopia?
Its totally wrong to bestow this prestigious medal on him.He should have been brought to the Hague for his motive to cause ethnic violence.
Is n’t this guy belongs to a Secret SOCITY OF Ethiopia?
Congratulation Prof.His books are standard for how history has to been wreitten with reference not hearsay.
Hyena ,why don’t you talk of your own Criminal Bros and sists ,Under the protection of the Agazi Bandits and Tigre Mafiosis sent to USA ,America ,Dubai ,South Africa and Australia hidden with fake status of DV holders ,businesmen ,students and even asylum seekers .Before vomiting your lies and hates on this
patriotic scholar .Time to talk about the past and whereabouts of your Great Hero Besrate Amare ,the Adgiforum ,Bandalandonline gangs ,and all the Amice Agazi Bandits surrounding Little Tyrant HMD and also the evil widow …LOL !!!!
@gANG & others who are busy & quick on the cadre style attack …please enjoy & appreciate anybody’s recognized work at least at acadamic level ..if you are better show us & we will be glade to put you as inspiring citizen ..but your way is too bad to be good ..please grow up men!!
Congratulations Dr. Getatchew! You deserve more recognition for your extraordinary works.
Look at these Woyanes.. Smoke blows out of their head when other Ethiopians earn recognition and acolade.
What amazes me is this professor was educated in Cairo , Egypt which @fitawrari day and night wished be dryland forever by working to divert the Nile Abbay river not to leave Ethiopian soil. Without Egypt we would not be able to have this kind of scholar however narrow minded he was. He live in Egypt and saw the plight of minorities in his own words but never voiced the so called minorities of Ethiopian voices!!!

Great Honor for the Prof.
God just didn’t give you the brains. There is absolutely nothing you can do about your genetic disorder that produces retards like yourself … born retards, die retards
@ Gragn Ah’Morsi
I bet your were a third class student we can tell from the rubbish you dump on this site. Where as the prof’s shoes is smarter than you lol
Why are you Woyanais so jealous with the Prof.?Is it because you are the blacks Mussolini that runs the country with mafioso style?Is it people like the Prof. with high caliber threatens your fictitious allegations abusing Ethiopia’s history and Ethiopians;Is it your days are getting numbered so you feel like the earth crack opens to swallow you.Get over it sell outs.
It is disappointing to read the comments above. The award is “for scholarly distinction and achievements in the field of Semitic languages or Ethiopian studies.” This did not include “resurrecting Harari” or his political affiliations. It appears civility within our community is going down the drains. The professor deserves the award for his untiring contributions in his specialized field of study. Perhaps some here need to study hard to [re]cover other areas of interest to all of us. Thank you Nazret for recognizing the awardee.
If i’m not mistaken this prof escaped gun shoot out during derg, i think he was injured in the shoot out somehow flied to london for treatment eventually to US. the prof worked hard mainly on geez script.
Heny, why you rush to defend your agazi banda when the prof is just academic researcher?
gragn Amedu, egypt belongs to copt before barbaric islam invaded.
Nice try , lol
But your underwear is dirtier than my shoe. lol. If you get low, I have no mercy for lowly creatures or beasts the likes of you.
To be honest this person did not invent anything or did extraordinary. He just sold Ethiopia valuable info to some other company. But I have to see what his accomplishments were to deserve him such a credit. But things are political and I understand this guy acted like the Linneus of Swedish Botanist of collection of animals and plants.
This guy focused on one religion and one yet he benefited from Muslim hands offer of scholarship to one of the most hateful priests of Ethiopia against Islam. But as I said i give him some credit for being passionate about his work.
I am no third class, I am 10th class, but I am sure I can teach your filthy rich aka drug dealer dad.
Yes, professor Getachew’s work has been praised and well received throughout the world chiefly because he is an expert in his field. However, those who don’t know the value education and don’t know the meaning of life and work, they simply are the leftover of life.
Professor Getachew is amazing and meticulous in the field he is authoritative. Congradulation!
My parents are from tigray and I am full blown Ethiopian with understanding of Ethiopian history. I was raised properly, means to admire the best and to condemn the worst in a civilized form. I have sensed ethnicist sentiment in Professor Haile and with all due respect I do not admire it. But his award is deservedly earned and the man is a genious in what he is awarded for; therefore, lets focus on his award and give him some respect for his old age and congratulate him for make us proud. Are we becoming worst than baboons. Why does every thing has to be mixed up. This days I am more worried about the mental health of our general population. We were not like this. Even our worst personalities were better than most of us now. This is a very scary trend. God bless and heal Ethiopia and Ethiopians.
Do you believe this gentleman graduated from Coptic Theological College in Cairo, Egypt?
At least Egypt has a Theological college for its 10% minority Copts?
We cannot say that about our own Ethiopia. The ruling group whether it is now or in the past wouldn’t allow a single School for its half of its population. Go figure.
You ever wonder why the younger generations are frustruated with statusque?
Acadamic merit is awarded through regourous evaluation of a valid work that proffs the best under experts in the area of the study …Some people are feeling that their personal feeling is knowledge,and all hear-says are facts. Come to your sense my brothers,be free,think indepedently and live as a human being! Needless to paint all muds on your own citizens achivement, no matter what political view he has. We are saying that we are a nation of diversity, & we should be courageous atleast to accept such kind of things leave alone opposing views! Stop the nonsense & ugly attack!!
