Mary E. Lyons Receives R&LHS Fellowship
To encourage the study of railroad history, R&LHS has awarded its 2016 William-D. Middleton/John H. White, Jr., research fellowship to Mary E. Lyons, a freelance writer and lecturer from Charlottesville, Virginia. Her project is transcribing and annotating Claudius Crozet's correspondence about the Virginia Blue Ridge Railroad, with the aim of publication.
The Railway & Locomotive Historical Society, Inc., founded in 1921, is the oldest railroad history organization in North America, and among the first anywhere to pursue formal studies in the history of technology. The Society promotes research and encourages preservation of documentation and photography of business history, finance, labor history, biography, and technology.
