Wallace Huffman, professor, has been awarded the prestigious Publication of Enduring Quality award by the Agricultural & Applied Economics Association for his co-written book with Dr. Robert E. Evanson, entitled Science for Agriculture: A Long-Term Perspective.
The Publication of Enduring Quality Award is granted to encourage excellence in publications in fields consistent with the AAEA mission statement. A maximum of one award is given each year for a publication with publication date falling at least ten years prior to the year of recognition. Entries are judged on the basis of the enduring quality of the publications to the profession. Competition is focused on a specific publication by the authors, one of who was a member of the Association at the time of publication, and not on the cumulative work of the authors.
The Association presented the award to Huffman at the AAEA Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony on Monday, July 31 at 5:30 pm in the 7th floor Grand Ballroom Salons II/III at the 2017 AAEA Annual Meeting in Chicago, IL. The ceremony was free and open to the public.
