Back in 1995, the Society for International Hockey Research (SIHR) gave me the honor of creating an award in my name.
This is what their webpage says (http://www.sihrhockey.org/public_mcfarlane_award.cfm)
THE BRIAN McFARLANE AWARD was created in 1995, in honour of our Honourary President and in appreciation of his support of the Society and his continuing contribution to the preservation of hockey history.
It recognizes “outstanding research and writing by members” and is judged on the calibre of papers presented to the Society and on special publishing projects outside the Society.
