BATON ROUGE –Richard White, associate dean for academic affairs in the LSU E. J. Ourso
College of Business and a professor in the LSU Public Administration Institute, has
been awarded a Helm Fellowship by Indiana University.
“The fellowship will support primary research in political biography in the oral history
archives at IU’s Lilly Library,” White said.
The Lilly Library is the principal rare book and manuscript library of Indiana University.
Its holdings support research in British, French, and American literature and history;
the literature of voyages and exploration, specifically the European expansion in
the Americas; early printing; the Church; children’s literature; music; film, radio
and television; medicine, science, and architecture; and food and drink.
According the Indiana University, the Everett Helm Visiting Fellowship program supports research and provides access to the collections of the Lilly Library for scholars residing outside the Bloomington area. Project proposals should demonstrate that the Lilly Library’s resources are integral to proposed research topics. Successful applicants will receive an award of up to $1,500 in support of travel, living, and/or research expenses. Awards must be used within one year of the award date and recipients must reside in Bloomington during the period of their awards.
