AAPS has been around since 1977, and it is today as it has always been, the members and friends that make the Association what it is. So many have contributed towards the science of paleontology and silently passed on without much notice. They worked in the background, collecting, preparing, mounting specimens, funding scientific research and donating specimens and they should be remembered for what they have accomplished in life.

We have listed the beginning of the AAPS Tributes, and hope that you will visit each page to read about each person's accomplishments.
