Missouri Historical Society launches initiative

(COLUMBIA, Mo., AP) — The State Historical Society of Missouri will offer two stipends to encourage study of the state’s environmental history and a new approach to studying state history.

Society President Stephen Limbaugh Jr. said in a news release that the $5,000 stipends will be offered in 2015 to two scholars for the new “Center for Missouri Studies” program. The program is in preparation for the 2021 bicentennial of Missouri statehood.

Gary Kremer, executive director of the historical society, will be the first senior fellow of the program, and will help shape the new center. His fellowship is in addition to the two competitive fellowships.

The Columbia Daily Tribune reports (http://on.ksdk.com/1kNShD4) applications for the fellowships must be submitted by Nov. 1. The winners will be announced no later than Jan. 1.
