The Claxton Medallion, established in 1995 by former College of Arts and Sciences board member Philander P. Claxton, Jr. in memory of his father, Dr. Philander P. Claxton, is awarded each year to the most deserving graduate of the College of Arts and Sciences who will be entering a fifth-year internship in the College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences to become a teacher. The monetary award has increased in recent years from $1,000 to $5,000 and is currently funded through a direct contribution from the Claxton family.

Dr. Claxton was the U.S. Commissioner of Education under presidents William Taft and Woodrow Wilson.

Philander Claxton, Jr. was born in Washington, D.C., and received a bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee in 1934. He also received a master's degree from Princeton University and was a 1938 graduate of Yale Law School. An expert in population control, he was a longtime State Department official and served as an advisor during the U.N. World Population Conference in Bucharest, Romania, in 1974. From 1978 to 1988 he was a consultant to the Futures Group in Washington on several projects involving the U.S. Agency for International Development. His work analyzed population as it figured into social and economic factors in countries around the world.
Arts and Sciences officials said Philander Claxton, Jr. was very proud of the Claxton Medallion Award and enjoyed presenting it and meeting the recipients each spring. He died in 1999 at age 84, so now his son, Philander Claxton, III, carries on the tradition and awards the Claxton Medallion and scholarship each year in honor of both his father and his grandfather. In 2008, Mr. Claxton added the Teacher Employment Award to the Claxton Medallion to help retain good teachers in Tennessee.
