FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LLOYD LIBRARY AND MUSEUM ANNOUNCES LLOYD RESEARCH FELLOWSHIP FOR 2015-16

 

 

 

Curtis Gate Lloyd Research Fellowships Announcement

Application Due Date, January 15, 2015

 

Cincinnati, OH - October 28, 2014: The Lloyd Library and Museum is
pleased to announce the call for submissions for the next round of
Research Fellowships, effective for the 2015-16 academic year.  This
will be the 3rd year the Library has offered this program for
researchers, who must have at least a BA/BS degree to qualify.

 

The Fellowship is named for the youngest Lloyd brother of Lloyd
Brothers, Pharmacists, Inc. (1885-1936), Curtis Gates Lloyd, who
ultimately took the company's Library under his wing and helped grow it
into the largest medicinal botany library in the western hemisphere.

 

The Fellowships are for a period of one to three months; proposals
should be primarily based on resources from the Lloyd Library's vast and
diverse collections.  Research topics can include, but are not limited
to the following:

*         Medicinal Botany (Including non-Western medical traditions)

*         Organic/Botanical/Medicinal Chemistry

*         Natural History

*         Early travel and exploration

*         Ethnobotany

*         History of Science, Medicine, Pharmacy (including Alchemy)

*         Pharmacognosy/Natural Product Development

*         Visual Arts

*         Cultural, Ethnic, and Social history

 

Past awardees have completed projects in the fields of botany, history -
exploration and plant, sociology, and art (covering a wide array of
visual topics).  To read more about the program and projects, visit

About the Lloyd: The Lloyd Library and Museum, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit
organization, is a local and regional cultural treasure, which began in
the 19th century as a research library for Lloyd Brothers Pharmacists,
Inc., one of the leading pharmaceutical companies of the period.  Our

allied sciences that serve the scientific research community, as well as
