Anthropology graduate students' hard work in class earns award

The Spring 2013 Cultural Resource Management class has received the 2014 State Historic Preservation Officer's Citation of Merit from the Oklahoma Historical Society. The award was given for the "exemplary Tulsa Neighborhood Project" that the students and Associate Professor of Anthropology Thomas Foster completed last year in cooperation with the Oklahoma State Historic Preservation Office. 

Graduate students concluded a series of detailed investigations into some of Tulsa’s most forgotten neighborhoods. The results are helping to advance a major preservation program. The students’ research will help decide if the areas still have integrity and can be used for historical context. 

Per the Oklahoma Historical Society, "The Citation of Merit is awarded annually to individuals, organizations, agencies, or firms that have made important contributions in the preservation of Oklahoma's rich heritage."
