Ramat Gan, Israel, last October;
an honorary doctorate (doctor
of business administration) giv-
en him by Albion College on
June 3, and the President's
Award given him Feb. 15 by
the University of Detroit.
Fisher is a member of the board
of the Greater Detroit Area Hospi-
tal Council, serves on the board of
United Foundation of which he was
chairman from 1966 to date and
whose Torch Drive he chaired in
1961, was president of the OF from
1964 to 1966, and is a member of
the boards of directors of Detroit
Symphony Orchestra, Sinai Hospi
tal, Detroit Museum of Arts
Founders Society, Cr a n b r o o k
School, Greater Detroit Board of
Commerce, Metropolitan Fund and
American Friends of Hebrew Uni-
versity.
He is a vice president of the
Council of Jewish Federations and

the CJFWF legacies and endow-
ment fund. He is a member of
Recess Club, Franklin Hills Coun-
try Club, Standard Club, Hundred
Club, Great Lakes Club, Bloomfield
Open Hunt, Palm Beach (Fla.)

Club and Detroit Yacht Club. He
is a non-resident member of Stand-
ard Club of Chicago and Harmonie
Club of New York.
In 1964 he was given the cov-
eted Fred M. Butzel Award.
Widely acclaimed in Israel as
"an optimist" and as "a great Jew
and a splendid American citizen,"
he is similarly described by
his fellow-citizens in Michigan
and the rest of the United States.
The many honors accorded him in-
cluded recognition of his religious
interests stemming from his active
memberships in Congregations
Beth El and Shaarey Zedek. The
Reform Jewish Appeal took note of
his devotion and selected him for
the American Judaism Award, and
he became lay chairman of the Re-
ligious Heritage Foundation in
1967.
Thus, as a recognized American
Jewish leader and as a principal
adviser to national philanthropic
movements and to the government
of Israel, Max M. Fisher receives
acclaim on his 60th birthday on a
worldwide scale.

Airport with a birthday cake

Vegas.
