The Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing excellence in discographical

"an unreconstructed, unreformed collector who loves to learn about music,
and then write about it, if I think I can get away with it." He holds
degrees from the University of Maryland (BA, 1960) and Catholic University
(MS, Library Science, 1962), and is a founding member of ARSC. Dick has
been writing about music and producing archival sets of foreign-language,
country, folk, and blues recordings since 1963. He is the author of Ethnic
Music on Records (7 vols., 1990), and co-author of Charlie Patton:
Screamin' and Hollerin' the Blues (notes to Revenant CD set, 2001) and
Country Music Sources: A Biblio-Discography of Commercially Recorded
Traditional Music (2003), all of which received ARSC Awards for Excellence.
Dick was also the founder of the journal Bluegrass Unlimited and since 1985
has been the producer/host of the Dick Spottswood Show on WAMU radio. He
continues to work on various CD and writing projects, including a
forthcoming ten-CD set on the Bear Family label, Extraordinary Calypso: The
Decca Trinidad Sessions, 1938-1940.

Distinguished Service to Historic Recordings Award given to David Hall

The new Distinguished Service to Historic Recordings Award, recognizing
contributions of outstanding significance to the field of historic
recordings in forms other than publication or research, was presented to
David Hall. David has been active in the area of sound recordings since
1940, in virtually every capacity the field offers aside from musical
performance. Author of The Record Book (1st ed., 1940, with several
successor publications), his subsequent career included positions as
classical music program annotator for NBC, director of classical recordings
for Mercury Records (1948-56, including producer of the "Olympian Series"),
director of the music center of the Scandinavian-American Foundation, music
editor of (and frequent contributor to) Stereo Review magazine, and
president of Composers Recordings Inc. His services to historic recordings
became most prominent beginning in 1967, when he became the first head of
the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archives of Recorded Sound at the New York
Public Library; there, he directed the long-term project leading to the
1985 publication of the complete edition of The Mapleson Cylinders. A
founding member of ARSC, he was the first editor of its Journal, later
President of the Association, and also a member of the Associated Audio
Archives Committee. After his retirement from NYPL in 1983, he continued to
serve as consultant to the R&H Archives, and also acted as chairman of
NARAS committees concerned with the classical Grammy Awards.

interests and concerns of its members, including historians, collectors,
dealers, archivists, discographers, and recording engineers. Through its
publications and meetings, ARSC provides a forum for the development and
dissemination of information in all fields and periods of recording and in
all sound media. In addition, ARSC works to encourage the preservation of
historical recordings, to promote the exchange of research and information
