“I have had an infinitely more exciting and worthy life because Liz was my mentor and my friend. There are thousands like me who feel the same.” Luci Baines Johnson

The Liz Carpenter Award for Research in the History of Women grew out of the Texas Women’s History Project. The award was part of our effort to sustain the interest—indeed, the passion—for Texas women’s history that started with the exhibition Texas Women: A Celebration of History. Liz Carpenter supported the creation of the exhibition and the many books and events that followed in every way that she could—from speeches to contacts to events to encouraging words. The award is a way to help support your efforts to continue to research and write Texas women’s history and also a way to honor Liz as a maker of Texas history.
