Letters to the Editor
APA Lifers
Psychiatric News
Volume 42 Number 11 page 24-24

Kudos to our president, Pedro Ruiz, M.D., for his outstanding column about the APA Lifers in the April 6 issue.

I do not recall a previous "From the President" article that mentions the Lifers. I hope Psychiatric News will henceforth report on Lifers' activities from time to time.

In addition to the contributions cited by Dr. Ruiz, the Lifers deserve recognition as the conscience of APA. Over the years, its members have adopted resolutions in support of human rights throughout the world. For example, at the annual meeting in 1998, the Lifers overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution calling for the abolition of capital punishment in the United States and commutation of the sentences of death row inmates to life imprisonment without parole.

It is gratifying to see that APA's elder statesmen are being publicly recognized. Thank you, Dr. Ruiz.
