ASA Award Recipients Honored in San Francisco

The 2004 recipients of the major ASA awards were honored on August 15 at the Awards Ceremony during the Annual Meeting in San Francisco. Victor Nee, Chair of the ASA Committee on Awards, presided over the ceremony, which was attended by a standing-room-only crowd of Annual Meeting participants, friends, family, and colleagues of the award recipients.

The ASA awards are the highest honors that the Association confers, with selections made by award selection committees who work, in some cases, for many months to make their final selection. Information on the awards and the 2004 recipients is presented below; additional detail (where available) will be published on the ASA website.
