Request for Nominations: Stone Practitioner & Scholar Awards

SIAM’s DONALD C. STONE PRACTITIONER AND SCHOLAR AWARDEES
Donald C. Stone (1903-1995) was a major and beloved figure in twentieth-century public administration. He was the founder of the American Public Works Association (APWA), served as the first Director of the Public Administration Service, and was a principal architect of the Executive Office of the President (EOP) in 1939 based on the 1937 recommendations of the Brownlow Commission. He was the first Director of the Division of Administrative Management of the Bureau of the Budget within the EOP, worked as Director of Administration of the Marshall Plan in 1948, helped found the National Academy of Public Administration in 1967, and served as Dean of the School of Public and International Affairs at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Section on Intergovernmental Administration and Management (SIAM) established the Stone awards in 1980. The first awards were made in 1981. The principal criteria for the Practitioner and Scholar awards are:
·         Significant contributions to the practice and/or study of intergovernmental relations over a substantial period of time
·         Contributions that have made an impact on the practice and/or study of intergovernmental management as a whole rather than only on a specific organization, institution, or function.
