|Judith McCulloh Award for Lifetime Service to the Field|
This award is named for Judith McCulloh (1935-2014), a driving force for excellence and leadership in book and journal publishing in folklore, ethnomusicology, and music history, and the creator of and prime mover behind the "Folklore in Society" and "Music in American Life" book series for the University of Illinois Press.
It recognizes extraordinary contributions in service that advance the visibility and success of the American Folklore Society or the field of folklore studies. The awardee is honored at the American Folklore Society annual meeting, and is given a certificate and a $500 honorarium.
