CASW Perlman Tribute 2020






Celebrate Dave Perlman and support the future of science journalism

The remarkable David Perlman (1918–2020) covered science for the San Francisco Chronicle for 60 years and served as a CASW board member and president. Inspired by Dave’s commitment, we invite you to support the future of science journalism in two ways:

1. Make a gift to CASW to help us carry Dave’s legacy forward and to improve the quantity and quality of science news reaching the general public.

2. Share your ideas about activities that embody Dave's commitment to the future of science writing. The CASW board and staff are working to develop programs that improve the quality and sustainability of science journalism. Your ideas could help inspire new activities. Do you have a suggestion? Let us know using this form, and feel free to share an appreciation of Dave while you’re at it!
