Outstanding Psychologist

A little reflected glory here. On January 26, my brother Charles S. Carver received an award for distinguished contributions to the field of personality psychology. The Jack Block Award was given by the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP)—the largest organization of social and personality psychologists in the world—"in recognition of his research accomplishments over the past thirty years which have shaped modern personality psychology." It was presented at the Thirteenth Annual Meeting of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology, in San Diego. The announcement didn't say anything about his contributions to football spectatorship or beer appreciation, but I'm sure they were thinking it. (Photo by his lovely wife, Dr. Youngmee Kim.)

Well done!
