Peter E. Palmquist Memorial Fund for Historical Photographic ResearchPeter Palmquist was killed at age 66 by a hit-and-run driver on January 13, 2003. A professional photographer for over 50 years, including 28 at Humboldt State University, he is considered one of the most important photo-historians of the 20th century. His emphasis was the American West, California, Humboldt County before 1950, and the international history of women in photography. He published over 60 books and 340 articles. With co-author Thomas Kailbourn, he won the Caroline Bancroft Western History Prize for their book Pioneer Photographers of the Far West. Professor Martha Sandweiss of Amherst College wrote, "He established new ways of pursuing the history of photography. With his collections and research notes now accessible at Yale, he will be speaking to and inspiring new generations forever." Established by Peter's lifetime companion Pam Mendelsohn, this fund supports the study of underresearched women photographers internationally and western American photographers before 1900.
