Applications for Carryl B. Martin Research Grant

Five years ago AAHS received a generous bequest from the estate of long time AAHS member, Carryl B. Martin to support research. The Board decided to use this bequest to fund a significant research grant of $5,000 for a project that would make substantial contribution to the field of archaeology/anthropology of the American Southwest or Mexican Northwest. This is the final year of the grant. Applications are due on December 18, 2020. You must be an AAHS member to apply. All details and previous winners can be found here.

Board of Directors Appreciation Awards

The AAHS Board of Directors presents AAHS Appreciation Awards annually to those volunteers who have gone above and beyond in their work supporting the Society. This year five outstanding volunteers were acknowledged with Appreciation Awards: Stanley Ponczek for his work supporting the AAHS book sales, Lee White for work editing the archival Emil Haury interviews, Debra Martin outgoing Kiva editor for her outstanding work over the past five years, John Douglass, past President for among other things negotiating a complex insurance policy for the Society and initiating the Traditional Technologies Program and to Katherine Cerino, past Vice President for Activities, for her many roles in supporting the society. In honor of her many years of service the AAHS Board has renamed the Appreciation Award to the Katherine Cerino Award.
