Kate Martin Undergraduate Folklore Award
In 2001, Susan Fagan and her husband, Tom Fagan, established the Kate Martin Undergraduate Folklore Award, given for the best archival fieldwork project and the Alma Johnson Graduate Folklore Award, for the best project completed by a graduate student in an English or folklore graduate course. The annual awards are named for Susan’s grandmothers, who were, as she realized once she began the study of folklore, the original spark for her lifelong interest in this field.
