The International House Awards Gala was established as the Harry Edmonds Awards by alumna and Honorary Trustee Daisy M. Soros to honor notable figures and institutions that have made significant contributions both within the I-House community and on a global scale, in the spirit of the House and its originator, Harry Edmonds. The awards have been expanded to include specific categories for service in the names of our founders and notable alumni.
