Annual Recognition Awards Announced

Each year AAHS presents awards to people who have made contributions in the fields of archaeology and anthropology. The recipients of the 2018 Byron Cummings award recognizing outstanding research and contributions to knowledge in anthropology, history, or a related field of study or research pertaining to the southwestern United States or northwest Mexico are ethnobotanist Richard I. Ford and historian Malcolm Ebright. The Victor R. Stoner award given annually for outstanding contributions in fostering historic preservation; or bringing anthropology, history or a related discipline to the public recognizes the long-term work of both T.J. Ferguson and Beth Grindell. The Alexander J. Lindsay, Jr Unsung Hero Award, now in its second year, is presented to Jamie Merewether collections manager and laboratory supervisor of Crow Canyon Archaeological Center and to Marilyn Markel for her many contributions to archaeology in New Mexico. Full biographical information for this year’s recipients can be found in the August issue of Glyphs. The awards will be formally presented at the Pecos Conference in August.

Congratulations to all.

Subvention Award Applications Due Sept 10th

2018 Subvention Award Recipient

The Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society is pleased to announce the 2018 competitive subvention award program for AAHS members. The purpose of this program is to provide money in support of the publication of digital or print books or Kiva journal articles that further AAHS’s mission. Many sources of grant funding do not support publication costs. Through this program, AAHS can provide occasional funding to prevent this barrier to the sharing of research results. This year, awards up to $5,000 will be considered.
