Lawrence E. (Woody) Woodward named 2018 Historian of the Year

Lawrence E. (Woody) Woodward was nominated as the 2018 Historian of the Year.  His nomination letter submitted by Dondra Menzel reads as follows:

“I would like to nominate Lawrence E. “Woody” Woodward as the 2018 Historian of the Year, a recognition that I feel is well deserved.  Woody generously donated land to the Historical Society when it became necessary to relocate the old Catholic church building that will one day be used as a history and visitor center.  He later offered his vehicle and time to travel several miles into Texas to help pick up the First Lady dolls when the Historical Society was able to purchase and return them to the Dupree community.  Woody has been a supportive member both personally and financially, from the time the group was incorporated and regularly attends the meetings and functions of the Historical Society.  Members like Woody are vital to the success and future of the Ziebach County Historical Society.”
