Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America
Distinguished Service Award

Citation to

Duane Deal

The Indiana Section Distinguished Service Award was initiated in 1993 to honor a member of the section by acknowledging his or her extraordinary contributions to the Section and outstanding efforts consistent with the stated purposes of the Mathematical Association of America and the Section, namely, assisting in promoting the interests of, and improving education in, the mathematical sciences in America, especially at the collegiate level.

Today I am privileged to be able to present the Indiana Section Distinguished Service Award to an individual whose service to his institution, mathematics, and the MAA has entered its fifth decade. His official positions have included being a superbly effective classroom teacher; chair of his department; vice-chair, chair, and sectetary-treasurer of the Section; editorial board member for the thirty-first NCTM Yearbook; columnist for the Indiana Mathematics Teacher; and the national president of Sigma Zeta Honorary Science Society. But we also have come to know him as a friend and colleague who, even during his retirement years, has never tired of bicycling across the Ball State University campus, traveling by train to national meetings, or talking about the history or dedagogy of mathematics.

Congratulations to Duane Deal, the recipient of the 1995 Distinguished Service Award.

Mic Jackson, Chair
Indiana Section of the Mathematical Association of America

March 31, 1995
