Awarded to Joseph Boonin, who has retired from The New York Public Library.
"As a stalwart supporter of both music and libraries for over fifty years,
as a publisher and music distributor, and finally as one who always felt
most at home as a music librarian, he will be remembered always as MLA's
unofficial voice-of-common-sense. His humanity, his kindness, and his
steady, logical approach to problems great and small have inspired
generations of music librarians. He has fostered much good will between
librarians and publishers. His advocacy of music libraries, of MLA and
public libraries in particular, and his service for two terms as a Board
Member-at-Large, have made MLA a better organization.?
