DuBuque Fellowship
Thomas R. DuBuque

The Thomas R. DuBuque Research Fellowship was created by the THS Board of Directors in 2012 to honor the memory of past THS president, Conclave Theatre Tour planner, and dedicated volunteer Thomas “Tom” R. DuBuque. Tom had a lifelong interest in theatres and was a member of THS from 1979 until his death in 2011.

Established in 2012 to support scholars conducting research in the Society’s archives, the Fellowship awards certificates and a cash award of $1,500 to support related expenses to visit the THS archive in Elmhurst, IL.
