2019 Martha and Artemis Joukowsky Distinguished Service Award: John Hale 

Award Citation:

The Archaeological Institute of America is pleased to present the 2019 Martha and Artemis Joukowsky Distinguished Service Award to Professor John Hale of the University of Louisville and the Kentucky Society.

Dr. Hale has served the Kentucky Society for over 30 years, including a long stint as president, when he graciously opened his home to AIA speakers.  He is well-known throughout the AIA speakers bureau for his domestic generosity.

Dr. Hale has also been one of the most sought-after speakers in the AIA’s lecture program for over sixteen years. He has been chosen for several prestigious AIA lectureships, such as the McCann/Taggert and the Norton ones.

The AIA lauds John’s contribution to the Institute over the many years and views him as the consummate selfless AIA member. He shares his research in a way that keeps audiences enthused about archaeology and he generously gives of his time to help the AIA at both local and national levels.

In every sense of the meaning behind this prestigious award, John Hale is supremely deserving of the Martha and Artemis Joukowsky Distinguished Service Award for 2019.
