Asheville Citizen, April 23, 1961



Asheville Citizen-Times

Departing from its usual custom of presenting the award to an individual, the award in 1961 went to the Asheville Citizen-Times for historical articles in last year’s 90th Anniversary issue. Terming the special edition a “monumental undertaking,” WNCHA representatives said: “Especially noteworthy were the numerous original articles of a historical nature that showed a capacity for painstaking research and discriminating judgment. This large edition is not only outstanding: its articles and pictures constitute a contribution of permanent value to Western North Carolina.”
