Archaeological Editor Honored

Ronald Michael One group of dedicated colleagues, who frequently go unrecognized, are the editors of scholarly journals, newsletters, and book-monograph series. Their contribution is basic to all scholarship. Ronald L. Michael (California University of Pennsylvania) has been nationally acknowledged for what may well be a record in editorship. At its 31st Annual Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, the Society for Historical Archaeology (SHA), presented Michael with the Carol V. Ruppé Distinguished Service Award. The award, which honors exceptional service to SHA, was given to Michael for his two decades of service as the editor of the society's journal, Historical Archaeology. Information on his life and editorial career was provided at the annual banquet by SHA Secretary-Treasurer Stephanie H. Rodeffer and the plaque was formally presented to Michael by SHA President Henry Miller. During his editorship (1978-present), Michael moved the journal from an annual to a quarterly publication of international standing. He also previously edited Northeast Historical Archaeology (1976-1977) and the Pennsylvania Archaeologist (1972-1994). Michael continues to serve as the editor of Historical Archaeology.
