COMPUTERWORLD HONORS
AWARD RECIPIENTS
1989 - 2004

The following Computerworld Honors Laureates were first selected by the Program's judges as Finalists, and then singled out for further recognition symbolized by a series of Awards in ten categories of human endeavor.

From 1990 until 2001 their case studies were archived by both the Computerworld Honors Program and the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C. , a part of the Smithsonian Institution. Finalists selected for further recognition during that first decade of the Honors program were designated as recipients of Computerworld Smithsonian Awards.

With the new millennium Laureates’ case studies become part of the broader, worldwide collection, archived on the world wide web, and also presented, in a variety of formats, to archives, museums, universities and libraries in each of the more than 40 countries on six continents represented by the Program’s Laureates.

In recognition of the contribution of each Laureate to a truly global
revolution, the most outstanding of each year’s Worldwide Finalists now receive special recognition in the form of Computerworld Honors 21st Century Achievement Awards.
