The award is named in memory of Richard K. Siegfried, SUNY Oneonta professor of theatre from 1958 until 1995. Professor Siegfried (or Sieg as generations of students fondly called him) epitomized excellence in his academic life, through imagination, meticulous scholarship and discipline, and through his expectation of the same pursuit of excellence in his students and colleagues. His dedication brought excellence to his work and to his rigorous study of the skills of voice and movement,, the college added.
