The Damaris Horan Prize
The Damaris Horan Prize was established by The Mudge Foundation and named for Royal Oak's Executive Director from 1987 to 2003. The Landscape History Fellowship is awarded biennially to provide talented Americans with a serious interest in landscape history and gardening a chance to experience the National Trust first-hand. Royal Oak is grateful to the Trust for offering this educational opportunity and to The Mudge Foundation for making these fellowships possible through its generous support.
