...Dr. Harris was one of the truly greats in the field of reading and one of the Association's strongest leaders. He served as IRA's president during 1957-58, continuing his support through the years. Through his generosity the Albert J. Harris Award was established, with the first award "for an outstanding contribution to the diagnosis and/or remediation of reading or learning disabilities" given in 1975. He will be missed by all who knew him...   by Bob Jones, October 16, 1990 (from a memo to IRA Board of Directors and IRA Past Presidents)
