    The
    American Theatre Architecture Archive at Theatre Historical Society of
    America (THS) seeks applications for the annual Thomas R. Du Buque
    Research Fellowship.
    Applications should be sent to Kathy McLeister, Archive Director no later than November 01 of each year.
    Proposals
    should be for a publicly available product such as an article, film,
    book, exhibit, dissertation, thesis, or other result shared with
    academic and/or public audiences

    The
    Archives and collections are dedicated to preserving the architectural,
    cultural and social history of America's theatres. It contains
    information on more than 17,000 theatres, primarily in the United
    States. Every period and style is represented including 19th century
    opera houses, nickelodeons, vaudeville houses, small town and
    neighborhood theatres, open-air theatres, drive-ins, and movie palaces.
    Purpose:
    The Fellowship was created to support scholars conducting research in
    the Society's archives and collections, to increase awareness of the
    Archives, and encourage its use. Grants of up to $1,500 are
    available to students, faculty, authors, and other users who would like
    to visit the archives for research. Grants may be used to fund travel,
    lodging, copying, scanning, photo reproduction, photo publication
    rights, and other research expenses. Preferred projects will involve the
    study of theatre architecture, theatre architects, and the operation of
    theatres in the United States

    Eligibility[/b]:
    The annual competition is open to undergraduates, graduate students,
    college and university faculty, independent scholars, and others who
    would like to use the archives and collections for research. Previous
