The Numan V. Bartley Award
The Numan V. Bartley Award was established by the SHA Executive Council and funded
by Numan Bartley's posthumous bequest to the SHA to support research on southern historical topics by
faculty at community colleges and other two-year colleges. The award was made every third year to one or more
applicants, in amounts ranging from $1500 to $5000.
As of 2015, the Bartley Award has been discontinued.
