CHNM Director recognized for “excellence in the humanities”

In a ceremony held December 9, 2004 at Old Town Hall in Fairfax, Virginia, CHNM Director, Roy Rosenzweig was presented with the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities’ Award for Excellence in the Humanities. The award recognizes citizens whose work – both professional and volunteer – has significantly benefited Virginians, and whose efforts embody the Virginia Foundation mission “to develop the civic, cultural, and intellectual life of the Commonwealth by creating learning opportunities for all Virginians – to bring the humanities fully into Virginia’s public life, assisting individuals and communities in their efforts to understand the past, confront important issues in the present, and shape a desirable future.” One of six recipients this year, Rosenzweig was singled out for the work he has done in the creation and development of CHNM and for his standing as a pioneer in the use of emerging technologies for the research, study, and teaching of history.
