IN SEARCH OF WORTHY NOMINEES FOR THE FOLLOWING AWARDS:
WHEELER B. MELIUS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE IN RECORDS MANAGEMENT
This award is given to a NYALGRO member who demonstrates outstanding service to his/her local government and New York's records management community.
The award is named after a clerk who worked in the Albany County Clerk's Office in the latter part of the nineteenth century. Wheeler B. Melius gained his notoriety when on February 10, 1880 he was the first to reach the burning Albany City Hall which housed an immense quantity of public archives and legal records. Melius, once on site, began to pass precious volumes of land records through a narrow window to volunteers outside. Single-handedly, Melius passed 700 volumes - nearly six tons of charred and often soaking, outsized books - out of the building.
GUY D. PAQUIN AWARD
The Guy D. Paquin Award is presented to an individual or organization to honor noteworthy achievements and exceptional support and involvements in the records management profession.
ROBERT ARNOLD AWARD FOR DISTINQUISHED SERVICE
