The Daughters of the Republic of Texas begin a new award honoring Elaine B. Davis. The first award goes to Debra Winegarten who plans a juvenile book on Clara Driscoll.
This inaugural award is self-described as
"The Elaine B. Davis Research Award, endowed by the 2007-2009 Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library Committee chaired by Connie Impelman and sponsored by the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library, is awarded to bring scholars to San Antonio, Texas, to work with the unique materials housed at the DRT Library. Mrs. Davis served as Director of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas Library from 1998-2008."
