Larry Rowen Remele Award

Larry Rowen Remele

Established by the Northern Great Plains History Conference to honor the memory of Larry Rowen Remele, this award is presented annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to the betterment of the conference. Remele, a long-time editor of North Dakota History, worked energetically to promote and enhance the conference and was serving as council chair at the time of his premature death in 1988.

The 2019 recipient of the Larry Rowen Remele Award is Terrence Lindell of Wartburg College, in Iowa, in recognition of his long and sustained commitment to the Conference. The ability of the Conference to persist over half a century is due not just to those at institutions in a position to host the Conference, but those who attend regularly, present well-considered papers, and engage in sustaining a network of historians throughout the region. This was the goal of those, like Larry Remele, who gave birth to the Conference decades ago, and the committee wished to recognize Dr Lindell’s role in sustaining that vision.
