Dr. Alfred R. Roberts was awarded life membership in the Academy of Accounting Historians in recognition of his many years of service and contributions to the Academy. The award and recognition of Al was made during the dedication ceremony of the Academy's new Administrative Office at the Garner Center in the Culverhouse School of Accounting at the University of Alabama. Dr. Dale Flesher, of the University of Mississippi and a past president and trustee of the Academy, made the presentation to Al. Al also received a bound volume of letters of congratulations and appreciation from his friends and colleagues. Of course there is no truth to the rumor that it was a one page volume.
