The Ellen C. Temple Research Fellowship in Texas Women’s History was established in 2016 by the Ruthe Winegarten Memorial Foundation for Texas Women’s History. The fellowship is named to honor Ellen Clarke Temple for her essential role fostering research in and laying the foundation for the field of Texas women’s history. It was made possible by a bequest from Frances Haskell Allmond to Nancy Baker Jones, her granddaughter.
