Professors of Economics, Susan Carter and Richard Sutch, Honored by American Library Association

By Christine Kitano, Editor Intern of CHASS College Computing

At the Midwinter Meeting of the American Library Association held in downtown Seattle in late January, Professors Susan Carter and Richard Sutch received an honorable mention for the Dartmouth Medal for serving as two of six editors of the updated “Historical Statistics of the United States,” a five-volume set of books published by Cambridge University Press. The book also earned an Outstanding Reference Award from the Reference and User Services Association.

The five-volume set is the product of over a decade of research during which Carter and Sutch were part of a team of scholars who helped select, edit, document, and analyze data and write essays on the analyzed material. The Washington Post and NPR have already referenced the books for information on the Civil War, the Presidency, religion, and migration trends.
