Chief Justice Mary Ann G. McMorrow Award
Attendees gathered for the presentation of the WBAI’s Chief Justice Mary Ann G. McMorrow Award, the very first award that any organization has named after Justice McMorrow. The Chief Justice is one of the WBAI’s greatest treasures. She served as our president in 1974 and for thirty five years has continued to support our association. The first recipient of this award was Charlotte Adelman for her continued years of service and preservation of the WBAI’s history by singlehandedly writing the WBAI 75 – a history book of the WBAI’s First 75 Years.
