In presenting the award, Fusion Power Associates president Steve Dean said, "Ever since your arrival in the fusion office in 1974, you have shown an extraordinary ability to assess and balance the many conflicting opinions and priorities of the fusion community. Your service as Chief of the Tokamak Systems Branch during the critical decade of the 1970s, and then as Director of the Toroidal Confinement Systems Division during the 1980s, demonstrated your management skills. Since assuming leadership of the program as a whole in 1989, you have guided the U. S. fusion community through a series of budget and policy crises, and eventually to the point where the U. S. is once more moving forward toward construction of a new major fusion test facility, ITER."
