Ellen Nold (Peacock) died of breast cancer on September 4, 2000. Her obituary summarizes her
In her honor, the journal, Computers and Composition established
the annual Ellen Nold Award for best article.
The award was named for her because Ellen was the first
person to write an article in the field of computers and composition.
Her title was "Fear and Trembling: A Humanist Approaches
the Computer" or something close to that. It appeared in a 1979 issue
of College Composition and Communication. [Thanks to Gail Hawisher
