Chester Price Award

The Chester B. Price Memorial Archeological Award was created by the Society in 1962 to recognize a member or non-member of the New Hampshire Archeological Society who, to quote the original proposal, “has contributed to a furtherance and better understanding and knowledge regarding the study and interpretation of the archeology as found in the State of New Hampshire.”  It was named in honor of Chester B. Price (1889 - 1959), an active member of the NHAS and well-known student of archeology and historian of the Native Americans of the state.
