Dugald MacArthur receives Lifetime Achievement Award
“No one has done more over the years to establish Philadelphia’s reputation
in the nation at large than Dugald,” McMahon says in his nomination letter.
“Temple University’s eater Department owes much of its national reputa-

stages owes much to the contributions of artists whom Dugald trained.”
MacArthur has trained theater artists who have found success in
Philadelphia, as well as those of national acclaim, including Bill Irwin, Tom
Sizemore, Dan Strickler, Ben Lipitz and Gerry Bamman.
MacArthur had rst set his sights on a career in business, earning a
from Dartmouth College and an from Harvard University.
“I thought I was going to love the business world,” he says.
