1997 Hall of Fame

Induction Speech for Sidney Homer

Inducted December, 1997

Mr. Charles Bishop, Membership Chair, made the following speech on behalf of Mr. Martin Fridson who regrettably was unable to attend the presentation of the second Hall of Fame award of the day. The award was accepted by Richard and Edward Homer Painter on behalf of their late grandfather, Mr. Sidney Homer.

Now that the Fixed Income Analysts Society Hall of Fame is a well-established institution, it is appropriate that we begin to recognize outstanding innovators who are no longer active in the field. No old-timer deserves the honor of induction more richly than the late Sidney Homer. Today’s proceedings testify to his impact on the field, for he was the founder of the great bond research effort of Salomon Brothers, the department that produced today’s other two inductees.

No induction speech available at this time.

Induction Speech for Andrew J. Kalotay

Inducted December, 1997

Immediate Past-President John Malvey presented FIASI’s Hall of Fame award to Andrew J. Kalotay, Ph.D. Mr. Malvey’s induction speech follows.

Our profession is tremendously indebted to Andy Kalotay, our first Fixed Income Analyst Society inductee of the day and fourth overall since the inception of the FIASI Hall of Fame two years ago.

The FIASI Board of Directors unanimously voted Andy's induction into the Hall of Fame based on his remarkable career as well as his outstanding long-term service to the Fixed Income Analysts Society.
