1997 William H. Flanigan Award for Distinguished Service as an ICPSR Official Representative
Judith Rowe was the first non-faculty Official Representative elected to the ICPSR Council. She brought decades of knowledge of data, the statistical system, computing, universities, and archives to Council, as well as a deep love for and concern with the health of ICPSR. She served ICPSR during some of its most challenging years. She taught most of us how to archive data, to provide high-quality user support, and to find the data, wherever they might be. Judith was also a leader nationally and internationally through her involvement with organizations such as APDU, COPAFS, and IASSIST. Her advice and counsel and wisdom were instrumental to the continued development of ICPSR.
