History

The Wallace E. Pratt Memorial Award was approved by Executive Committee action and the first award was made in 1982. The award was formerly a part of the President's Award. Wallace E. Pratt (1885-1981) was one of the world's most distinguished geologists. He was a founder of the Association, served as its fourth president and was the first recipient of the Sidney Powers Medal. He was also awarded AAPG's Human Needs Award and Honorary Membership. He was a Distinguished Lecturer, served on many committees, and remained a constructive adviser and inspiration all his life. Dr. Amos Salvador, in his memorial to Pratt, said "But Wallace Pratt was not only a geologist; he was also a businessman, a scientist of broad interests, a humanist, a philosopher and a magnificent human being."

Funding

Funding for the award is provided through the AAPG Foundation Awards Fund through a bequest from AAPG member Fred W. Bartlett (1897-1982).
