The Donald R. Wiles Prize for Laboratory Demonstrators

A prize is awarded annually for excellence in being a Teaching Assistant in a first-year Physics laboratory.

This award was endowed in 2006, by friends of Donald R. Wiles, Professor Emeritus of Chemistry, on the occasion of his 80th birthday. Prof. Wiles is a radiochemist, a former Chair of Chemistry, and continues to be active on campus including teaching in the first-year science seminar course. 

At Convocation on Saturday November 12 2011, Prof. Wiles was awarded the degree Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, "in recognition of distinguished contribution to scholarship and service to Carleton University".
