Army Archerd to receive posthumous award

Late <i>Variety</i> columnist honored by Asbestos Disease Awareness Org

Variety columnist Army Archerd will be honored posthumously by the Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization (ADAO) next month in Chicago.

Dubbed the Warren Zevon Keep Me in Your Heart memorial tribute, event will bestow its inaugural award on Archerd, who died in September of mesothelioma, a rare, asbestos-related cancer.

“My father would be enormously honored to have had the opportunity to pay tribute to Army Archerd,” said Jordan Zevon, ADAO spokesman. Singer-songwriter Zevon, best known for hits such as “Werewolves of London,” died of mesothelioma in 2003.

“The tragedy of asbestos disease is a story that unfortunately continues to be written for many families. I hope that Army’s legend of making a difference through his work can help give an even louder voice to the efforts to write its end,” said his widow, Selma.

The Warren Zevon tribute will be presented at ADAO’s annual international conference on April 10 before a community of expert physicians, scientists and safety and health care professionals committed to preventing, treating and curing asbestos-related diseases in the U.S. and globally.
