DEAN J. FAFOUTIS RECOGNIZED FOR 11 YEARS AS ISSR EDITOR

Dean J. Fafoutis, editor of Pi Gamma Mu's journal, the International Social Science Review, from 2002 until last month, has been elected to the Pi Gamma Mu Hall of Fame. The international Board of Trustees elected Fafoutis during its meeting on October 17‑19.

Fafoutis is a native of New York City. He studied chemical engineering at the Polytechnic Institute of New York and transferred to the City College of New York, from which he received a B.A. degree in history. He also earned an M.A. degree in history from the University of Arizona and completed doctoral coursework at Indiana University in Bloomington. His area of specialization is the history of U. S. foreign relations.

Fafoutis has been a lecturer in history at Salisbury University in Salisbury, Md., for the past 20 years. Previously, he was an associate instructor of history at Arizona and a grader and associate instructor of history at Indiana, where he taught U. S.-history survey courses and electives in diplomatic and military history for nine years. Fafoutis was elected to membership in Pi Gamma Mu by the chapter at Salisbury.

Fafoutis called his service as the ISSR's editor "very rewarding." He said that he enjoyed the opportunity to promote Pi Gamma Mu's ideal of scholarship, one of the honor society's seven ideals. Fafoutis added that he always appreciated the ability to give young faculty members a boost up the academic ladder by publishing their work, as well as to help talented students achieve their educational objectives. He expressed gratitude to the many referees who offered their expertise to the peer-review process during his 11 years as editor.

Barry D. Friedman, Pi Gamma Mu's international president, was the journal's book-review editor during Fafoutis's first six years as editor. "I developed a deep admiration for Dean's remarkable skill as a writer and editor," he said. "I was always so impressed by his insight as he identified ways to convey information in book reviews more clearly and completely." Friedman noted that, in recent months, the Board of Trustees has voted to designate Fafoutis as the journal's editor emeritus, and has now expressed its appreciation to him additionally by electing him to the Hall of Fame. Pi Gamma Mu's international second vice president, Dr. Clara Small, long-time faculty advisor of our chapter at Salisbury University, and the chapter's co-advisor, Dr. G. Ray Thompson, conducted a ceremony at Salisbury on November 18 during which they awarded to Fafoutis his Hall of Fame honoree plaque.
