The National Council of the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial has honored
Frank Muhly, a member of the Foundation board and founder of the
Philadelphia Chapter, with the 2002 Harry Hubbard Award for leading
the effort to create the brochure "The Eastern Legacy of Lewis
and Clark." The award, named for the first president of the
Council, was presented to Muhly at an April workshop in Lewiston,
Idaho. In presenting it, Council member Ron Laycock called Muhly
the initiator and "driving force" behind the brochure,which
was copublished by the Philadelphia and Ohio River chapters and
includes a map and text outlining the expedition's progress from
Washington, D.C., to Camp DuBois, in Illinois.
Thanks to Ron Laycock for permission to reprint this announcement
from the August 2002 issue of We Proceeded On-- and congratulations
to Frank Muhly!
