SLA San Francisco Bay Region Chapter History - Recent Awards

  • Our own Richard Geiger of the San Francisco Chronicle has been awarded the Joseph F. Kwapil Memorial Award by the SLA News Divison. This award, the highest recognition of the Division, is given for major achievement in the field of news librarianship and outstanding service to the News Division. More information can be found at http://www.ibiblio.org/slanews/about/ndawards.html#kwapil.
  • Phyllis Waggoner wins SLA Hall of Fame Award
    The San Francisco Bay Region Chapter has a new member of the SLA Hall of Fame. When I caught up with Phyllis Waggoner this morning, she said that she had been “astounded” and “could not be more excited and surprised” to receive a telephone call last Tuesday from the Association headquarters in Washington notifying her of the honor. They immediately asked if she would come to Toronto to receive the award in June. She said that Toronto was too far. And the Headquarters person said that she would receive an official notification of the honor very soon.
    Phyllis, recipient of the President’s Special Recognition Award last September, modestly admitted that “I don’t take these awards personally. There were so many other people involved. We have always wanted the Association to prosper.” Her sixty years of membership in our chapter and her many years of service certainly reflect that wish!
    Election to the Hall of Fame is granted to a member of the Association at the end of an active career for “distinguished service to the Association in all spheres. However prolonged distinguished service within a chapter or division which has contributed to the Association as a whole may receive special consideration.” Other Chapter members who have been honored in the SLA Hall of Fame include Helen Waldron, Alleen Thompson, Mark Baer, Bill Petru, Jack Leister, and Julie Macksey.
