The Department of History at the University of Kansas announces the 2016 competition for the annual award in honor of the late Professor Jerry Stannard. The purpose of the award is to encourage research by young scholars in the pre-1700 fields that Professor Stannard made his own: the history of materia medica, medicinal botany, pharmacy, folklore of drug therapy, and the bibliography of these areas.
Each year a cash award in the amount of $1000 is made to the author of an outstanding published or unpublished scholarly study in those fields.
Entries must be received no later than 15 February 2016. The award will be announced on or about 1 May 2016.
All manuscripts and correspondence should be addressed to:
