The Dr. Phyllis R. Blakeley Award was established by the Council of Nova Scotia Archives in 1988 as a memorial to Dr. Blakeley’s many contributions to the world of archives, and as recognition for current work accomplished within that tradition.

The award is presented annually to a CNSA-member institution displaying outstanding accomplishments in the archival field through a project that has:

  • in some way focused upon archival holdings, and/or
  • promoted the concept and value of archives, and/or
  • displayed excellence relating to a specific archival function (accessioning; appraisal; arrangement and description; and public service), and which has lasting archival value.

The winner will receive $200, the Dr. Phyllis R. Blakeley Award plaque, suitably engraved, to be retained for one year for display purposes; plus a Certificate of Recognition.
