The Employee Benefits Research Institute, Washington, is calling for nominations for the 1996 EBRI Lillywhite Award.
The award is given to recognize contributions by persons who have had distinguished careers in the investment management and employee benefits fields, and whose outstanding service enhanced Americans' economic security.
The award was named after Ray Lillywhite, a pioneer in the pension field. Mr. Lillywhite retired from Alliance Capital Management in 1992 at age 80, after a 55-year career that, before Alliance Capital, included the administration of state employee pension plans. During his career he helped found numerous professional organizations and educational programs.
Previous winners of the Lillywhite Award include Robert G. Kirby, former chairman of Capital Guardian Trust Co.; John W. English, former chief investment officer of the Ford Foundation, and before that, director-investment management at AT&T; and Claude Rosenberg, chairman of RCM Capital Management, who headed the Association for Investment Management & Research's development of performance reporting standards.
Nomination forms, which should be returned to EBRI by March 29, can be obtained by contacting Debra Milne at (202) 775-6361.
