I was honored to receive two recent awards. In August 2009, I received the Oliver Wendell Holmes award from the Society of American Archivists. The award is given annually to an SAA member from outside the U.S. to subvent costs in attending the Society’s annual meeting. Oliver Wendell Holmes was a member of SAA, and an archivist, who joined the National Archives staff in 1935 and served in many capacities, including that of executive director of the National Historical Publications Commission. Holmes was a Fellow of SAA and past president.
Last fall, my research poster on the virtual reunification of the Worcester Philippine photograph collection was honored with the “People’s Choice” award at the UM School of Information’s fall research exposition. The award was chosen through a blind ballot election open to all attendees at the fair. To learn more about this project, read about my dissertation research. Read the press release here.
