History

The award of Honorary Member was established in 1919. It was elevated to third honors position and given “medal” status by Executive Committee action in 1974. The medal bore the AAPG seal on the obverse side, with the recipient’s name, the designation “AAPG Honorary Member,” and the year awarded on the reverse side. It was worn on a neck ribbon assembly. In 1982, the Executive Committee approved changing the award to a walnut chest containing the appropriate presentation data.
