["Distinguished Service Medal", A.I.S. Bulletin 204 (January 1972): 47.] The Board of Directors, at the Oklahoma City meeting, voted William T. Bledsoe, Immediate Past President of the American Iris Society, the Distinguished Service Medal. Bill has been a member of the Board of Directors since January 1965, served as Second Vice President for three years, and has just completed a three-year term as President. In addition, he was chairman of the Exhibitions Committee for some years, and chairman of Judges Training for a period of years. He authored two editions of the Judges Training Handbook. He now is devoting the time which a rigorous term as President took to his iris hybridizing program.
