For more than half a century the Wyoming State Historical Society (WSHS), an independent, non-profit organization with more than twenty-one chapters across the state, and its many members from throughout the United States and Europe, have been promoting the collection and preservation of Wyoming’s history. Since its beginnings in 1953, the Society has also served as a strong advocate for Wyoming’s historical resources.
The WSHS recognizes individuals and organizations in the field of Wyoming History with an annual awards program. 2014 winners include two WordsWorth publications:
Rodger McDaniels’ Dying for Joe McCarthy’s Sins, and Hunter Patrick’s Better Known as Boxcar Murphy
