He served as president of the Directors Guild of America from 1975 to 1979. A special award presented by the Guild was created posthumously.

While being interviewed for "Little Caesar: A Biography of Edward G Robinson" (New English Library, 1983), Aldrich said that he thought the only reason he had not been blacklisted along with many Hollywood notables was because he was only a low-level assistant director at the time of the red hunt.
