The David D. Monieson Best Student Paper Award has been part of the CHARM conference since 1997. David D. (Danny) Monieson was Emeritus Nabisco Professor of Marketing at Queen’s University, Canada, until his passing on September 20, 2008.
Born and raised in Montreal, Monieson was educated in economics and statistics at the University of Vermont (1949), earned his MBA at Miami University of Ohio (1951) and PhD in Marketing at Ohio State University (1957). After serving on the faculties of the University of Toronto and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Monieson joined the School of Business at Queen’s University in 1961. Twice a recipient of the Queen’s Commerce Society Teaching Excellence Award, during more than three decades as a marketing teacher and consultant, Monieson inspired students and business leaders alike.
Between 1983 and 1992 at Queen’s University, he taught a doctoral seminar on the philosophy and history of marketing thought. Several of Monieson’s students have followed his research interests in marketing history and the history of marketing thought.
