The Distinguished Fiji Award was established by the Fraternity in 1964 and is presented to brothers for their faithful service to Phi Gamma Delta or their special contribution to mankind and society at large. Each year, the Archons select up to six outstanding Brothers for this recognition. President Daniels is the 17th Lambda Iota Brother to receive the award. That impressive list includes Joe Rudolph '48, Gene Cernan '56, Brian Lamb '63, Chuck Armstrong '64, Dick Grace '51, John Edwardson '71, Morgan Burke '73, Tim McGinley '62, and Tom Spurgeon '61.
