Professor Painter is also widely known as a mentor of younger scholars. She has advised more than twenty dissertations at four major universities. She has also mentored numerous other young historians and scholars in related disciplines, at universities across the United States, advising them in detail on how to improve their book manuscripts and how to manage their careers. In 2000, the American Historical Association awarded her the Roelker Mentorship Award as recognition for this work.
Nell Painter celebrated her 60th birthday on August 2, 2002. As part of the celebration of this milestone, her family organized a tribute on this website. Many of Nell's friends simply extended their greetings; others recalled personal experiences with Nell; others provided appreciations of her scholarly work.
