Professor Richard N. Farmer, professor of international business in Indiana University, passed away February 28, 1987 following an extended illness. Professor Farmer was a former AIB president, an AIB Fellow, and one of the Academy's earliest and most active members. He served for many years as chairman of the Indiana University International Business Department. His many contributions to the field of international business are well known and too numerous to list. The Academy's board of Directors has chosen to recognize Professor Farmer's contribution by renaming the AIB dissertation award in his honor. Henceforth the award will be known as the Richard N. Farmer Dissertation Award.
