Don Quijote by Anna Hyatt Huntington; Sancho Panza by Carl Paul Jennewein, Brookgreen Gardens, SC. Brookgreen was founded in 1931 by Archer and Anna Hyatt Huntington. Archer Huntington was a Sigma Delta Pi Honorary President, 1935-1955.

ELIGIBILITY AND NOMINATION PROCEDURES:

From Sigma Delta Pi’s National By-laws:

Article XIV

Section 3

The Order of Don Quijote

So that membership in the Order of Don Quijote, one of Sigma Delta Pi’s highest
honors, may continue to have full meaning, it is controlled by the national office,
requiring the approval by a majority vote of a committee chaired by the executive
director and comprised of at least three past inductees of this Order. The executive
director will issue the corresponding plaque and pin to be presented at an appropriate ceremony to the honoree.

Membership in this order is restricted to:
(1) nationally or internationally distinguished scholars in the field of Hispanic studies;
(2) distinguished teachers of Spanish who are employed in an accredited four-year college or university,
or retired from such service, and have published extensively in the field of Hispanic studies; and
(3) college officials, members of the clergy, officers of service clubs or fraternal organizations, members of the judicial, legislative, or executive branches of our
federal or state governments, and other such professional people who have served our
cause in a very distinguished manner and who would honor us by accepting this award.

Nomination to this order may be made by a local chapter (by unanimous vote of all
active members and approval of the chapter adviser), or by a national or regional
officer, and must be sent together with a detailed supporting letter and résumé of the nominee, to the Executive Director. The executive director will distribute the nomination
to the committee members and relay the final decision to the nominating chapter or
officer within three weeks, unless additional information is needed.

*Dr. John H. LaPrade was inadvertently inducted twice into the Orden de Don Quijote: in 1968 and 1998.
