The History of Microbiology Research Travel Award program was initiated in 2012 by the Center for the History of Microbiology/ASM Archives (CHOMA). The awards were given to support historical research of the awardees' choosing, in areas that could be supported by materials in the CHOMA collections. The CHOMA collections, located at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, include 9,000 volumes on microbiology and related topics, photographs, biographical materials, topical files on various aspects of microbiology, records of the Society from its founding in 1899 to the present, and several collections of personal papers.
