In 1971, Reed founded the library’s Southern Labor Archives, the largest accumulation of labor records in the Southeast. The fellowship is awarded annually by the Special Collections Department to scholars whose research in the archives is expected to lead to a book, article, dissertation or other substantive product in the field of study.
