    The reputation of Who's Who, under Albert Nelson Marquis' aegis, was unassailable as it was for decades later.

    Marketing did not become an adjunct component until fairly recently when economics resulted in Marquis' "heirs" wanting to remain legitimate as they struggled to stay stay solvent at a time when new hardback publications are finding it hard to stay afloat in a paperless economy. To that end, aggressive marketing of vanity options were born.

    Even so, it remains easy to separate the wheat from the chaff; the deserving from the suckers. The options remain options. Not requirements.

    It remains easy for the focused to continue to say "No."

    To wit: An entry or award received despite a refusal to to pay for play is not tarnished except, perhaps, in the minds of those who care what other people may think. Why lump disparate objectives together, especially on the assumption that the uninformed will do so?

    Marquis' Joy Forrier remains emphatic: "For clarity, there has never been a cost associated with inclusions in Marquis Who's Who. Biographies are included in our registry strictly on merit- no one can buy or purchase a position, listing or award from Marquis Who's Who."

    I couldn't express it better: Should Marquis' selection process charge I'll renounce the Marquis honors I've received since the current "regime" took over while remaining proud of the ones I earned to that point.

    The facts are that I have been recognized in the 2022 Edition of Who’s Who in America (75th Edition) as the recipient of the recipient of this year’s Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award; an award bestowed on only 5 percent of those who are profiled in Who’s Who.

    Eligibility is limited to those who meet all of the following requirements: Previous listing in a Marquis Who’s Who publication over a 20 year period (My biographical entries are as follows: Who's Who in America - 1996, 50th Edition [pub. 1995]; Who's Who in America - 1995, 49th Edition [pub. 1994]; Who's Who in America - 1994, 48th Edition [pub. 1993]; Who's Who in America - 1992-1993, 47th Edition [pub. 1992]; Who's Who of American Women - 1997-1998,20th Edition [pub. 1997]; Who's Who of American Women - 1995-1996, 19th Edition [pub. 1995]; Who's Who of American Women - 1993-1994, 18th Edition [pub. 1992]; Who's Who of American Women - 1991-1992, 17th Edition [pub. 1991];), with more than 20 years’ experience in a particular career field or industry, having been published in at least two books or articles highlighting her experience, having exhibited one or more of my creative works and having received at least one award outside of Marquis Who’s Who.

    I’ve never paid a penny for any recognition from Marquis Who’s Who’s nor any other organizations.
