Alexander J. Lindsay Jr. Unsung Hero Award


Established in 2017, the Alexander J. Lindsay Unsung Hero Award honors the late Lex Lindsay, a long-time southwestern archaeologist, AAHS supporter and AAHS Board Officer. Although Lex was definitely not an unsung hero, he recognized the importance of individuals whose work has often gone unacknowledged. This award is given for tireless work behind the scenes that is critical to the success of others’ archaeological, anthropological, or historical research projects or publications.
