At the 1998 annual meeting of the American Society of Primatologists (ASP) in Georgetown, TX, W. Richard (“Dick”) Dukelow was honored with the ASP's Distinguished Primatologist Award, the society's highest honor. Gerald Ruppenthal, Chairman of the Awards and Recognition Committee, summarized Dukelow's outstanding achievements in his award presentation which was later published in the ASP Bulletin of December 1998 (22:4). As a memorial to Dick, who passed away at the age of 81 on New Year's Day 2018, we have updated Ruppenthal's tribute to our dear colleague and friend who served the ASP in several capacities.Dick was a founding member of the ASP. In 1976, at the suggestion of Andrew Hendrickx, he met with Joe Erwin to discuss formation of the ASP and development of the American Journal of Primatology. He subsequently served as Treasurer and then President of ASP. He also served as Treasurer and President of the International Primatological Society.Dukelow received his B.S. (1957), M.S. (1958), and Ph.D. (1962) (Reproductive Physiology) from the University of Minnesota. Following a one‐year post‐doctoral position at the University of Georgia (1964–1965) in the Department of Chemistry, he joined the faculty in the Department of Biochemistry as an Assistant Professor (1965–1969).
