The McKenney Trophy, named after ACBL Executive Secretary William E. McKenney, was first awarded in 1938. It went to the player who won the most masterpoints during each calendar year.  In 1986, the competition was renamed the Barry Crane Top 500, after Barry Crane, the top masterpoint winner of his era.  The Mini-McKenney Awards were created in 1974 to annually recognize top masterpoint winners in 15 categories based on number of masterpoints held at the beginning of each year, from 0-5 up to over 10,000.  Masterpoints won at all ACBL-santioned events, excluding online points, are counted - including local club games, STaCs, Sectionals, Regionals, NABC tournaments, and Special Events.
