The American West Center awarded Hannah Smay, Environmental Humanities master’s student one of the two Floyd O’Neil Fellowships for 2018-19. This fellowship, in honor of the late professor Floyd A. O’Neil, is awarded to a student doing research in the American West.
At 90 years of age, you’ll still find Floyd O’Neil in his book-filled office in the University of Utah’s American West Center, where he has worked since 1966 and where he served as director for 11 years.
The American West Center Prepares a National Historic Landmark Nomination for the Stewart Indian School
In the spring of 2017 the American West Center launched a new project on behalf of the State of Nevada Indian Commission– the preparation of a National Historic Landmark Nomination for the Stewart Indian School.
The American West Center is pleased to announce our new project, the historical register nomination for the Stewart Indian School located just south of Carson City, Nevada.
As part of that broader goal, AWC affiliate faculty member Dr. Elizabeth Clement, Associate Professor of History, is conducting an oral history project that documents the medical, social, cultural, political and religious aspects of the epidemic in this very conservative place.
