The Mexico Institute of the Wilson Center is pleased to congratulate Roderic Ai Camp on his award of the Order of the Aztec Eagle. Camp is being honored with the Order of the Aztec Eagle for his contribution to the promotion of Mexican culture in the United States through his work in academia.
The award was created in 1933 by Mexico’s then President Abelardo L. Rodríguez to recognize individuals who had contributed significantly to both Mexico and humanity at large. To this day, the country’s president is the only one who can issue this distinction. The Order of the Aztec Eagle is the highest honor foreigners can receive from the Mexican government.
Roderic Ai Camp is a member of the Mexico Institute’s Advisory Board and a former Mexico Institute Global Fellow. Most recently, the Institute launched his book Mexico: What Everyone Needs to Know.
Camp is the Phillip M. McKenna Professor of the Pacific Rim at Claremont McKenna College. For more information on his decoration, please see Claremont McKenna College’s press release.
Congratulations, Rod, from all of us at the Wilson Center.
