On November 5, President Neil L. Rudenstine read the following citations to four of this year's HAA Award recipients. (Dudley Fishburn will hear his encomium at a ceremony in London.) Established in 1990, the HAA Awards recognize alumni who have demonstrated extraordinary service to Harvard through volunteer activities.
Charles E. Balbach '56, M.B.A. '60. Energetic leader and champion of Harvard College, the Harvard Business School, and the western New York community, you have raised the science of thoughtful service to an art.

Rodney D. Hardy '60. Bearer of the Harvard-Radcliffe banner in Minnesota, former club president and regional director of the Harvard Alumni Association, neither distance nor bitter cold have been able to dampen the warm enthusiasm that fuels your service to Harvard.
Patricia Cleary Miller '61. First woman president of the Harvard-Radcliffe Club of Kansas City, HAA regional director, and board member of the Radcliffe College Alumnae Association, you have been a dedicated liaison between Harvard, Radcliffe, and the south central states you have represented so loyally.
