The Western National Parks Association (WNPA) has recognized noted author David Grant Noble with the 2011 Emil Haury Award.

The award recognizes the recipient’s “outstanding contributions to scientific research in the national parks and monuments and for creating a greater public understanding of the rich natural and cultural heritage preserved in those public resources.” In just the past ten years David has produced pathbreaking books that manifest his commitment to our parks and their mission, including In Search of Chaco, The Mesa Verde World, Santa Fe: History of an Ancient City, and In the Places of the Spirits.

The award will be presented to David at the joint meetings of WNPA and the Intermountain Region of the National Park Service in Golden, Colorado, on November 3, 2011.

Previous SAR alumni who have received this recognition include Senior Scholars George Gumerman and Linda Cordell.

Founded in 1938 as Southwest Monuments Association, WNPA promotes preservation of the national park system and its resources by creating greater public appreciation through education, interpretation, and research. Haury, the noted Southwest archeologist for whom the award is named, served as an advisor to the initial Southwest Monuments Association board of directors and soon thereafter joined the board.
