In the January 17, 1984, issue of Eos (p. 22), you will find the citation and acceptance of the 1983 winner of the Robert E. Horton Award, David A. Woolhiser. This edition of WaterWatch contains a listing of past winners of both the Horton Award and the Horton Medal. In addition there is a call for proposals for the 1984 Horton Research Grant. That's a lot of Horton, and experience has shown it to generate considerable confusion. Here I hope to clarify matters by drawing upon the historical research of our past president, James R. Wallis.
