Five SISP Authors Awarded Smithsonian Secretary’s Research Prizes for 2013

We are thrilled to announce that four recent SISP books and their authors have been honored with distinguished research prizes by the Secretary of the Smithsonian. The winners are:

William J. McShea and Stuart J. Davies for The Ecology and Conservation of Seasonally Dry Forests in Asia

Sid Hart for 1812: A Nation Emerges

Thomas Lera for The G.H. Kaestlin Collection of Imperial Russian and Zemstvo Stamps

E. Warren Perry, Jr. for Echoes of Elvis: The Cultural Legacy of Elvis Presley

Congratulations to all our winning authors!


In an effort to encourage sustainability and expand online access to Smithsonian research, as of October 1, 2014, SISP will no longer send print copies of the Smithsonian Contributions Series and proceedings to general mailing lists. Organizations that require print copies may contact Resource Acquisitions at Smithsonian Libraries (202-633-2070) to inquire about joining its exchange program. Others may register at Open SI to receive "new publication" notifications and email SISP for print when copies become available (quantities limited).
