Robert Demarest: A Retrospective - 1989 Lifetime Achivement Award Recipient

  • Neil Hardy


At the 1989 annual meeting of the Association of Medical Illustrators held in Dallas, Texas, Robert J. Demarest received the AMI's Lifetime Achievement Award. The Award is the highest honor awarded by the Association of Medical Illustrators, and is awarded to an individual who has dedicated his or her professional life as a medical illustrator. In doing so, this individual has engaged with fellow illustrators, not only to support the ideals of the profession, but also to ensure that it thrives, progresses, and advances the Association.

Neil Hardy fondly presented "Robert J. Demarest: A Retrospective" during the meeting's Awards Ceremony. The following year Neil's presentation was published in its entirety in the Journal of Biocommunication, Volume 17, Number 4.

As a tribute to Bob, we proudly republish Neil's 1990 JBC article here.
