Museum Award

Monday night was a great night, for me and for a number of other people who were recognized by the Museum of Western Colorado for our work related to the museum and its mission. I received the 2016 Historian Award. It was both gratifying and humbling, and I deeply appreciate the museum even considering me for this. In this photo, I’m standing with John Lindstrom of Palisade, who was the recipient of the 2016 Archaeologist Award.

The Awards themselves are aspen-wood vases, made by a volunteer at the museum, so they’re pretty special, as well.

As I said when I received the awar

Special thanks to all of the wonderful readers who frequently tell me how much they enjoy my history columns.
