    Abstract: The Charles R. Barnum History Awards were established by a grant from Mr. Barnum in the late fall of 1952. Mr. Barnum was a realtor and insurance broker in Eureka. He was a member of the Humboldt State College Advisory Board from March 1946 until his death in February 1953. The purpose of the trust he established is "to aid, assist and encourage worthy students of Humboldt State College in furthering their interest in original historical research of Humboldt County." The first awards from the Barnum Trust were made in 1956.
