SARAH HALL

1988 Herbert Bloch Award Winner

Sarah Hall passed away on October 10, 2010.  She was the heart and soul of ASC for 30 years, serving as the Executive Administrator from 1976 until her retirement in 2006.  While ASC presidents, journal editors and board members came and went, Sarah was the constant who oversaw the growth and development of ASC into what it is today.  The consummate professional, she worked with the highest level of devotion and dedication.   Sarah was always just a cheerful phone call away, helping committee chairs and executive officers to understand and fulfill their duties, and the new members to find their way.  For 30 years, Sarah Hall WAS the American Society of Criminology, and we all benefited immeasurably because of it.  She was greatly loved and is greatly missed.  A tribute session for Sarah was held at the ASC meetings in 2011, in Washington, D.C.
