(Abstract only) ´╗┐We propose the AAVSO create a Hall of Fame. Much like the baseball or football hall of fame, each year we would induct a number of people, hold a ceremony, present awards, and hear acceptance speeches. In this paper we outline the process, costs, and the justifications for an AAVSO Hall of Fame.
