With the recent loss of long-time members Jack Kramer, Christine Bauman and Marty Escoffier, we are reminded that the ATA created this fund to provide a vehicle for ATA members to contribute in memory of deceased ATA members and friends. Each August, the trustees allocate a portion of the fund balance to benefit doctoral student education. Possible uses include travel costs, registration fees, or consortium materials for doctoral students. Information on making a contribution to the ATA Memorial Fund.
