Curtis Gate Lloyd Research Fellowships Announcement

Application Due Date, January 15, 2015

Cincinnati, OH – October 28, 2014: The Lloyd Library and Museum is pleased to announce the call for submissions for the next round of Research Fellowships, effective for the 2015-16 academic year. This will be the 3rd year the Library has offered this program for researchers, who must have at least a BA/BS degree to qualify.

The Fellowship is named for the youngest Lloyd brother of Lloyd Brothers, Pharmacists, Inc. (1885-1936), Curtis Gates Lloyd, who ultimately took the company’s Library under his wing and helped grow it into the largest medicinal botany library in the western hemisphere.

The Fellowships are for a period of one to three months; proposals should be primarily based on resources from the Lloyd Library’s vast and diverse collections. Research topics can include, but are not limited to the following:

 · Medicinal Botany (Including non-Western medical traditions)

· Organic/Botanical/Medicinal Chemistry

· Natural History

· Early travel and exploration

· Ethnobotany

· History of Science, Medicine, Pharmacy (including Alchemy)

· Pharmacognosy/Natural Product Development

· Visual Arts

· Cultural, Ethnic, and Social history

Past awardees have completed projects in the fields of botany, history – exploration and plant, sociology, and art (covering a wide array of visual topics). To read more about the program and projects, visit
