Bourses de recherche Etat-Unis 2019 : The John H. Daniels Fellowship – National Sporting Library & Museum

The John H. Daniels Fellowship supports researchers at the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM), a research library and fine arts museum dedicated to preserving, promoting and sharing the literature, art and culture of equestrian, angling and field sports.

The National Sporting Library & Museum or NSLM (formerly the National Sporting Library) is a research library and art museum in Middleburg, Virginia in the United States.

The National Sporting Library was founded in 1954 in the personal library of George L. Ohrstrom, Sr. The founders of the National Sporting Library focused their new organization on accessibility of research materials on horse and field sports, finding other libraries on these topics to be insufficiently accessible to the public. The first President of the National Sporting Library was Fletcher Harper, long-time Master of the Orange County Hunt in The Plains, Virginia. Additional founders included Lester Karow, and Alexander Mackay-Smith, Editor of The Chronicle of the Horse. When Ohrstrom, Jr. died in 1955, his son, George L. Ohrstrom, Jr., became an officer of the library.

History

Since 2007, the NSLM has hosted the fellowship program in honor of the legacy of sportsman and book collector John H. Daniels (1921-2006). Past Fellowship recipients include post-graduate students, authors, curators, professors and scholars researching a variety of subjects related to field sports. The diversity of Fellows’ projects reflects the wide variety of material within the F. Ambrose Clark Rare Book Room and the NSLM collections. Topics include history, art, literature, anthropology, and sport, with research projects ranging from the architecture of horse stables, history of horsemanship, equestrian fashion, and poetry, to falconry, veterinary science, environmental conservation and fly fishing.
