Allan Reed Keith
ABA Caludia Wilds Award to Nuttall Member Allan Keith
At the December 2014 meeting of the NOC, the Claudia Wilds Award was presented to Allan Keith of Chilmark, Massachusetts, by Jeff Gordon, current ABA President.
The award, named for a former ABA Secretary and shorebird expert, is given for "distinguished service to the ABA." Allan was twice President of the ABA – from 1989 to 1993 and from 1997 to 1999 — and served earlier as a Board member and ABA Treasurer. In all these capacities, his investment and business savvy was of immense benefit to ABA at a difficult time in the association's history.
Allan is Chairman of the Nuttall Board of Trustees as well as Chairman of the Nuttall Publications Committee.
