Winners of 2nd Carryl B. Martin Award Announced

On the recommendation of the AAHS Research and Travel Grant Committee the 2nd Carryl B. Martin Research Award $5,000 annual award is to be split between two proposals. Kathryn Baustian of Skidmore College will receive $3,900 for the collections-based portion of her project Kinship and Interaction in the Prehistoric Mimbres Region of Southwest New Mexico: An Exploration of Skeletal and Cultural Indicators. 

Brandon McIntosh of Washington State University will receive $1,100 towards a portion of his project titled Ancient Turkey Domestication in the Northern Mogollon Region of the U.S. Southwest: Stable Isotope, aDNA and Osteometric Evidence for Human-Turkey Interaction in the Southeastern Southwest.

Once again we had a good pool of applicants and renew our thanks to Carryl B. Martin for providing this bequest which will contribute to the support of significant research in the Southwest.
