Fellowship

The John H. Daniels Fellowship supports researchers at the National Sporting Library & Museum (NSLM), a research library and fine arts museum dedicated to preserving, promoting and sharing the literature, art and culture of equestrian, angling and field sports.

History

Since 2007, the NSLM has hosted the fellowship program in honor of the legacy of sportsman and book collector John H. Daniels (1921-2006). Past Fellowship recipients include post-graduate students, authors, curators, professors and scholars researching a variety of subjects related to field sports. The diversity of Fellows’ projects reflects the wide variety of material within the F. Ambrose Clark Rare Book Room and the NSLM collections. Topics include history, art, literature, anthropology, and sport, with research projects ranging from the architecture of horse stables, history of horsemanship, equestrian fashion, and poetry, to falconry, veterinary science, environmental conservation and fly fishing.
