Photo Gallery From ASOR Gala Honoring P. E. MacAllister

P.E. MacAllister served as ASOR Board Chair for 19 years and has been on the ASOR Board for more than 37 years. Almost 100 friends and family gathered at the Skyline Club in Indianapolis on April 20, 2013 to thank him for his leadership to ASOR as he transitions to Chairman Emeritus of the ASOR Board. The event also marked the public announcement of the establishment of the P.E. MacAllister Endowed Scholarship Fund for Archaeological Volunteers. The following is a photo gallery of images from the evening (all images are courtesy of Dimensions Photography who volunteered their services for the gala event.)
