The induction of the first group into the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame marked an important moment in the history of 20th century adult learning. The accumulated legacies of ideas, leadership, and scholarship of the inductees – which represent the best of the past and near-past – provides a critical touchstone for continuing education's next century.

These innovative leaders have believed passionately in the evolutionary power of education. All are themselves exemplary lifelong learners and have left lasting impressions on the students, institutions, and organizations they have served.
