Kerr Prize Committee

The Kerr Prize Committee selects the finalists in the Kerr Prize competition for the annual meeting each year and then the winner after hearing the presentations. The committee was expanded to four people in 2012. Note that the year always refers to the meeting year, at which terms begin and end.
