Edward Payson Hall Jr., PhD, Professor Emeritus at Western New Mexico University, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in communication.

Holding the title of professor emeritus at Western New Mexico University since 2010, Dr. Hall has built up an inimitable reputation for success as an educator over the past three decades. Backed by a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Washington, he earned a Master’s in intercultural and international communication from the University of Hawaii in 1974. He proceeded to return to the University of Washington, obtaining a PhD in 1980. Dr. Hall began his career as an assistant professor of communications at the University of Delaware, going on to teach at Radford University before finding a permanent position at Western New Mexico University in 1993. During his time there, he excelled in multiple positions, including coordinator of accreditation/self-study, professor of communications, chair of humanities, and, finally, professor emeritus.

Prior to Dr. Hall’s time as a teacher, he spent several years with the United States Marine Corps, during which he took part in a trip to Vietnam. It was there that he discovered the admirable culture of the Vietnamese people, which served as the initial inspiration behind his decision to explore intercultural and international communication. Looking back on his illustrious career, Dr. Hall considers the most rewarding aspect of his work to have been the moments when former students return to tell him just how much they enjoyed his class. As a testament to his success, he is featured in multiple editions of Who’s Who in America.
