Funded for the first time this year and anonymously in honor of the late Merrill Wadsworth Smith. Merrill was an active member of ARLIS/NA serving as its President in 1991, and was the Associate Head Librarian of the Rotch Architecture Library at MIT.
The Merrill Smith Travel Award in Architecture will be unveiled at the 2008 Denver Conference and given to ARLIS/NA members who are actively, but not necessarily exclusively, involved with the field of architecture in visual and/or print collections including librarians,
visual resources curators, archivists, and students.
This is a wonderful gift to ARLIS/NA that will help us memorialize an honorable member and recognize those who epitomize the best of our profession.
The deadline for applications and nominations for the Merrill Smith Travel Award in Architecture is February 15th, 2008. Please find more information – http://www.arlisna.org/about/awards/awards_index.html
