We’re honored to announce the following 2013 awards from the Association for Recorded Sound Collections, presented last week in St. Louis at their annual conference:
Allan Sutton — 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented annually to an individual who, “through a body of published work, set standards worthy of emulation by others; contributed significant original approaches to his field; and exhibited persistence and dedication over an extended period in the pursuit of knowledge about recorded sound.”
The American Zonophone Discography, Vol. 1 (William R. Bryant) — Finalist, 2013 Award for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research
The Award for Excellence “recognizes the contributions of these individuals and aims to encourage others to emulate their high standards and to promote readership of their work.”
We are very grateful to ARSC and its members for their ongoing support of Mainspring Press, its authors, and its mission over the past decade, and will continue to strive to be worthy of the awards they’ve bestowed.
