Presidents Message

Carryl B. Martin Award Applications due in November

In late 2015 the Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society received a substantial bequest from the estate of Carryl B. Martin, an avocational archaeologist and long time member of AAHS, specifically to support our research program.

A single award of $5,000.00 will be given annually to a high-quality archaeological or historical research project that focuses on significant questions in the archaeology of the Southwest United States or Northwest Mexico. In the spirit of Carryl Martin projects that allow opportunities for participation by avocationalists will receive special consideration.

Application Deadline: Applications will be accepted electronically between November 1, 2018 November 30, 2018. All applicants must be members of AAHS.
