Carl Halbirt Wins the Ripley P. Bullen Award

At the 60th annual meeting of the Florida Anthropological Society (FAS) hosted by the Central Gulf Coast Archaeological Society recently held in Ybor City, City of St. Augustine archaeologist Carl Halbirt was awarded the Ripley P. Bullen Award. 

Nominated by the St. Augustine Archaeological Association (SAAA) for the award, SAAA representative to the FAS Toni Wallace said the chapter was “very proud to nominate Carl for the Ripley P. Bullen Award.  Carl, as the city’s archeologist, has been one of the primarily examples of the use of avocational archeologists…probably one of best examples in the country.” 

She further stated that the “award was almost written for Carl and his archeological program.  He completely epitomizes the criteria that is used to determine the Bullen Award…we were very proud to nominate him and happy that he was selected.”

Presented to Carl by FAS president Patty Flynn, she stated that “Carl has recruited, trained and supervised a cadre of volunteers who are essential to the successes of the City Archaeology program.  And many of these volunteers are members of the FAS and the St. Augustine Archaeological Association.”

Further, she said “Carl’s expertise in ‘reading the soil’ is legendary.  His skills in field techniques give him a special sense.  His insights come with good humor.”

The Ripley P. Bullen Award is given yearly by the FAS to candidates recognized for contributions to the improvement of working relations between professionals and vocational archaeologists in the State of Florida.

Congratulations to Carl Halbirt for receiving this prestigious award.
