“This newspaper obituary does not mention his funding (founding) of the Grant Goodman Prize in Philippine Historical Studies, which has been important in the recognition and development of that field.  Grant was a good man, and a good friend to the Philippines and Filipinos.

In acknowledgement of all that he did for the PSG, and to let people know of his legacy with us, this was posted on the necrology guestbook:

Professor Goodman very generously endowed the Grant Goodman Prize in Historical Studies in 1990. Administered by the Philippine Studies Group (PSG) of the Association for Asian Studies, seven lifetime achievement awards have been given in his name, helping build an immeasurable legacy of excellence in scholarship on the Philippines and the recognition of interdisciplinary historical studies in Asia. He will be fondly remembered as a mentor, scholar and friend. https://philippinestudiesgroup.wordpress.com/past-awardees/
