LSU Press is receiving the honor on its 75th anniversary and for its record of volumes related to Louisiana’s heritage. Editor Mary Katherine Callaway will accept the award. Since 1935, LSU Press has worked to preserve the culture and history of Louisiana by publishing books that educate and enlighten readers. From Local Government in Louisiana by R.L. Carleton in 1937 to George Lowry’s classic Louisiana Birds in 1958; from Marsh Mission by C.C. Lockwood and Rhea Gary in 2005 to Archaeology of Louisiana, edited by Mark A. Rees in 2010, the LSU Press continues to strive to publish books that matter.”
