Center for Research on Vermont Presents Student Awards
    for Taft Corners Study and Women's History Project

The Center for Research on Vermont announces the 1997 recipients of
two undergraduate student research awards for superior Vermont
projects: James D. Brown IV has received the sixteenth annual Andrew
E. Nuquist Award for Outstanding Student Research on a Vermont Topic
for his project, "Ecological Site Planning and Design for a Vermont
Community Growth Center: A Case Study of Taft Corners, Williston,
Vermont," a 1996 senior thesis for the Environmental Studies Program
at the University of Vermont (UVM). Receiving the first annual George
B. Bryan Award for Excellence in Student Research on Vermont is
Regina-Anne Cooper for her paper, "Three Vermont Diaries," which was
completed for an independent study class in the Adult Degree Program
of Vermont College of Norwich University. Center for Research on
Vermont Director Paul Eschholz, a professor in the Department of
English at UVM, announced the awards at the Center's Annual Meeting,
held at the University of Vermont on April 30, 1997. 

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

James D. Brown IV received the 1997 Nuquist Award for his 1996 UVM
senior environmental studies program thesis, "Ecological Site
Planning and Design for a Vermont Community Growth Center: A Case
Study of Taft Corners, Williston, Vermont, which was co-nominated
for the award by UVM advisers Carl Reidel, Sanders Professor of
Environmental Policy, of the Environmental Program and Jeffrey
Hannigan, adjunct professor in the Department of Art. In nominating
the project for the award, Reidel described Brown's project as "a
remarkable piece of research" which, in Hannigan's words, "confronts
the most significant challenge facing the state of Vermont--the
preservation of its pastoral and historic landscape." Using personal
interviews, planning documents, and site plans, Brown examines the
history of development at Taft Corners and analyzes the various
proposals for Taft Corners relative to both local regulations and
contemporary ideology. The resulting study and its conclusions, says
Reidel, "are insightful and well grounded in research [which] will be
invaluable for future scholars and for those involved directly in
planning for Vermont's future." Currently residing in Jackson,
Wyoming, Brown graduated from the University of Vermont in 1996.

Regina-Anne Cooper of Hartland received the 1997 George B. Bryan
Award for her paper, "Three Vermont Diaries," which she wrote as part
of a semester-long, self-designed study of women's narratives. In
writing her paper she used unpublished, primary sources--women's
diaries--two from the Woodstock Historical Society's collection and
one, author unknown, from a private collection in Hartland. In
nominating the project for the award, her adviser, Michael Sherman,
assistant professor of liberal studies, described how Cooper "not
only studied . . . and transcribed the diaries but . . . successfully
identified the [unknown] writer and pieced together information about
her life"  in an "extraordinary accomplishment for a beginning
student in history."

This is the first time that the Center presents this award, which is
named in memory of George B. Bryan (1939-1996), University of Vermont
Professor of Theatre and former Director of the Center for Research
on Vermont. A prolific and internationally known scholar, generous
colleague, and inspiring mentor, Dr. 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:
Perspectives on the Past_--a selection of essays, published in
cooperation with the Center for Research on Vermont, from the
acclaimed humanities series, "We Vermonters" for which George B.
Bryan served as project director--and a cash prize from a special
fund established by friends and colleagues of Dr. Bryan in tribute
to his memory.

Both of these award-winning projects are available for researchers
to consult at the Department of Special Collections in Bailey/Howe
Library at the University of Vermont. 

The deadline for the 1998 Bryan and Nuquist awards is February 2,
1998. The George B. Bryan Award is offered for excellence in a
project on a Vermont topic completed for a one-semester course; the
recommended length is 15-25 pages. The Andrew E. Nuquist Award is
presented for outstanding research on a Vermont topic; it is usually
awarded to a culminating study. All university and college
undergraduate students who complete projects meeting these criteria
between January 1, 1997, and December 31, 1997, are eligible to enter
their work in the 1998 competitions. Anyone wanting to submit a
project should send a letter of intent by January 20, 1998, to
Kristin Peterson-Ishaq, Coordinator, Center for Research on Vermont,
589 Main Street, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT  05401-3439.
