Madalyn Ard (History), Glynnis M. Linderman (English) and Nicholas J. Mizer (Anthropology) have been named the 2011 recipients of the Cushing/Glasscock Graduate Humanities Research Award. Co-sponsored by the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives and the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, this annual award provides graduate students in the humanities with $2,000 to cover research expenses for projects based in the collections of the Cushing Memorial Library and Archives.

Ard’s project, “Farm Animals in Suburban Backyards: 4-H and Community Awareness in Post War Texas, 1945-1989,” will examine resources  in the Texas and Oral History collections. Linderman’s project, “The Women’s Legion: The Role of Female Authors in The Legion Book,” will focus on manuscript material housed in the literary collections. Mizer’s project, entitled “The Pictures are So Much Better: Cross-Media Trends and Orality in Dungeons & Dragons,” will explore material found in the gaming collections of the Science Fiction Research Collection.

Ard, Linderman, and Mizer will participate in the 2011 Cushing/Glasscock Award Ceremony in the fall at Cushing Library where they will present the findings of their research.
