Dr. Philip Mason’s long and productive career includes the leadership of Wayne State University’s Walter P. Reuther Library where he served as its director for over 30 years and as president of three archival organizations, including the Society of American Archivists, where he oversaw its reorganization. It was this organization that made him a Fellow. Added to these accomplishments, he established Wayne State University’s archival education program and has authored numerous books and articles. With his retirement came the much-deserved title, Distinguished Professor Emeritus.
