There is an excellent review of Josh Malks' Cord Complete book in the Sunday, June 1st NY Times; automobile section. Also mentioned are several other car books; just in time for Father's Day.
In the Cord Complete review is the word "amanuensis." It means "secretary" or "one who copies or writes from the dictation of others." It goes on to say that "this second book could easily be thought of as Mr. Malks's effort to make sure his accumulated knowledge was transferred to paper so that the Cord automobile, gone from production since the close of 1937, would not be forgotten."
Not be forgotten INDEED!
CORDially, Tim.

Forgotten, I don't think so! In that vane, how about not forgetting Josh. As I have said before, he needs to have some kind of award developed in his honor. Who is going to come up with it?

The ACD Board would have to approve the award name. That being said, Club members are certainly allowed to make suggestions.
Paul Bryant deserves recognition also.

While I greatly admire both of the gentlemen mentioned, I feel that it is a poor precedent to create honorary named awards that are not funded. Both will long be remembered for their contributions to the club.

My experience is that named awards are usually not funded in perpetuity and very soon the club has another award that it must fund.

It makes sense. Let's see about getting it funded? Could start a donation list on this site?

Let's consider purposes as well. We already have an award - the Benson Award - for writing, two Cord awards, and three separate awards honoring individual achievements benefiting the Club.

Let's remember Josh and Paul by doing as they would have done in our daily interactions with people, enthusiasts and otherwise. I have a framed photo of Paul - half-in, half-out of a Certification-in-process speedster - in my living room, and keep a full run of Josh's books on my desk at work. I miss both of them every day, but their memory reminds me to be thorough, conscientious, and honest.

Just my two cents.
