Vermont Research Center Honors Student Projects
Topics Examine Youth Out-Migration, Rutland Knights of Labor

The Center for Research on Vermont at the University of Vermont (UVM) is 
pleased to announce it has awarded prizes to two undergraduate students 
for their superior projects on Vermont research topics.

The recipient of the 2010 Andrew E. Nuquist Award for Outstanding 
Student Research on a Vermont Topic is Andrew Turgeon of Bennington, Vt. 
His project, “Young People’s Place in Community: Cross-Examining 
Teenagers’ Identities, Space and Social Differences in Southern 
Vermont,” was the University of Vermont (UVM) geography major’s honor’s 
thesis. The project was advised and nominated for the award by UVM 
Geography Professor Pablo Bose.

The recipient of the George B. Bryan Award for Excellence in Vermont 
Research in 2010 is Kevin Madore of Bridgewater, Mass., a Middlebury 
College (MC) junior majoring in both history and psychology. He received 
the Bryan Award for his project “The Labor Fever of the Rutland Knights: 
How the Working Class Gained Power in the Marble Utopia of Vermont.” MC 
History Professor Kathryn Morse advised the project and nominated it for 
the award.

Center for Research on Vermont Director Robert Rodgers presided at the 
May 4 awards ceremony at the center’s annual meeting, held at the 
University of Vermont. The prizes were presented with assistance from 
_Vermont Life_, which cosponsors the Nuquist Award.

In nominating Turgeon’s project for the Nuquist Award, Dr. Bose said 
that he “performed analysis and synthesis of an extremely high caliber, 
drawing insights from and bringing together emerging literature on 
childhood, rural landscapes, and both economic and demographic shifts in 
the state.” Moreover, he added, “Mr. Turgeon took up an issue of 
considerable importance and value to his local and regional communities 
and engaged youth like himself in meaningful dialogue.”

Middlebury College student Kevin Madore received the Bryan Award for his 
one-semester research project, which according to advisor Kathryn Morse, 
combines “intensive primary research in local Vermont sources with an 
impressive grasp of the Vermont marble industry, the Knights of Labor 
nationally, and labor movements in Vermont.” She commented that “[t]he 
final result is both well-written and compelling and sheds new light on 
a part of Vermont history we may have assumed we fully understood.”

The Center for Research on Vermont offers the Bryan Award annually in 
memory of Dr. George B. Bryan (1939–1996), UVM Professor of Theatre and 
two-term center director. A prolific and internationally known scholar, 
generous colleague, and inspiring mentor, Bryan was particularly well 
known in Vermont for his research documenting the state’s rich 
theatrical tradition. The Bryan Award consists of the publication _We 
Vermonters: Reflections on the Past_—a collection of essays, published 
in cooperation with the Center for Research on Vermont, from the 
acclaimed “We Vermonters” humanities series which Bryan directed in 
1990–1991—and a cash prize from a special fund established in his memory 
by friends and colleagues.

The Nuquist Award has been offered annually by the Center for Research 
on Vermont since 1982, with the assistance of _Vermont Life_ Magazine, 
for a culminating study on a Vermont topic. The award, which consists of 
a cash prize from the Center for Research on Vermont and a publication 
from _Vermont Life_, is given in memory of Andrew E. Nuquist 
(1905–1975), UVM teacher, scholar, and student of Vermont.

The award-winning projects—along with finalists—will be deposited in the 
Department of Special Collections in Bailey/Howe Library at the 
University of Vermont, where they will be available to researchers upon 
request.

The deadline for the next round of the Nuquist and Bryan awards is March 
1, 2011. University and college undergraduate students who complete 
projects demonstrating superior treatment of a Vermont theme between 
January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2010, are eligible to enter their work 
in the 2011 competitions. Submissions may be received at any time, not 
just in March of the award year.

Anyone wanting to submit a project should send a letter of intent by 
February 1, 2011, to the Center for Research on Vermont, 589 Main 
Street, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT 05401-3439. For additional 
information, please call 802-656-4389 or email [log in to unmask] or visit the
