AAHS Establishes the Alexander J. Lindsay, Jr. Unsung Heroes Award
The new Alexander J. Lindsay, Jr. Award is named in honor of Dr. Lindsay, a long-time southwestern archaeologist, AAHS member and officer. The award will be given annually in recognition of lifetime service from those individuals whose tireless work behind-the-scenes has often gone unrecognized, but which is critical to the success of others’ archaeological, anthropological and historical research, CRM projects, and the preservation of information about the past; it will be limited to the Southwest/Northwest regions of the US and Mexico. Nominations for the award should be sent to Ron Towner, Chair of the AAHS Awards Committee by April 1, 2017.
Awardees will be selected by the Awards Committee and approved by the AAHS Board of Directors. Awards will be presented at the Pecos Conference in August.
