Dudley Wilkinson Award of Distinction
The Dudley Wilkinson Award of Distinction was established in 1988 and was named for the authors—Dorothy H. Dudley and Irma Bezold Wilkinson—of Museum Registration Methods.
It is issued to a museum professional who has demonstrated commitment to the highest standards of excellence in the registration profession. Past recipients of the award include Marie Malaro, Kay Paris, Stephen Weil, Mary Case, Kittu Longstreth Brown, Cordelia Rose, Rebecca Buck and Jean Allman Gilmore, Deborah Hull-Walski and Gwen Bitz.
The award is present every two years and the winner is asked to address the Registrars Network at the business meeting.
