N. Gordon Carper was a long-time professor of history and quizbowl coach at Berry College.

According to the Georgia state legislature, his "expert and unwavering guidance" enabled his "perspicacious students" to develop and refine the "mental agility, verbal dexterity, and intellectual acumen that are necessary for continued excellence in college bowl competition." [1]

He is best-known today in quizbowl circles as the namesake of the Carper Award, of which he was the first recipient. Carper passed away in 2011.
