Sister Alfreda Elsensohn Award

The Potlatch Historical Society has received the Sister Alfreda Elsensohn Award for its outstanding work. Given annually by the Idaho Humanities Council and Idaho State Historical Society, the Sister Alfreda recognition includes a $10,000 award to be used by the museum, historical society or interpretive organization to continue its educational efforts. The Idaho State Historical Society and the Idaho Humanities Council will present the award to Karen Rohn and the Potlatch Historical Society. The award is named for Sister Alfreda Elsensohn, who founded the Historical Museum at St. Gertrude in the 1930s. It is her vision of Idaho museums as exciting, interactive and educational institutions that the award seeks to recognize by honoring one outstanding Idaho museum each year. RSVP:
