The Sally Kress Tompkins Fellowship, a joint program of the Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) and the National Park Service's Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), permits an architectural historian to work on a 12-week HABS project during the summer. The Fellow will prepare a written history to become part of the permanent HABS collection focusing on either a specific nationally-significant building/site, or a broader architectural history topic that will inform future HABS documentation. The Fellow will be selected by a jury of two SAH members and one HABS representative. The Fellow will be stationed in the field working in conjunction with a HABS measured drawings team, or in the HABS Washington, D.C. office. More information
