US - The American Poultry Historical Society will honour five outstanding individuals by inducting them into the American Poultry Industry Hall of Fame next week.

The five people to be honoured are: Donald Dalton, Lonnie 'Bo' Pilgrim, Paul B. Siegel, Robert D. Sparboe and the late J. Paul Thaxton, Jr.

The ceremony will take place on Thursday 28 January 2010 at the International Poultry Exposition in Atlanta, Georgia. The Award ceremony begins at 09:00 a.m. in Room A-411 of the Georgia World Congress Center.

The announcement was made by Dr Nick Zimmermann, Chair of the APHS Committee of Thirty and an Associate Professor of Animal and Avian Science at the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland.

The American Poultry Historical Society was formed at the 1952 Boston Poultry Show. It has remained dedicated to the purpose of preserving historical records and honoring distinctive personal achievement. Preserved records are maintained in the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland.

The American Poultry Historical Society bestows this honour on a maximum of five individuals at three-year intervals. A bronze plaque bearing the image of each inductee will be on permanent display in the National Agricultural Library in Beltsville, Maryland. The Poultry Industry Hall of Fame display is being revitalized and a Dictation Ceremony will be announced in the near future.
