ORANGEVILLE - John Buford is the recipient of the 2009 Studs Terkel Humanities Service Award presented by the Illinois Humanities Council. The IHC invited Orangeville Village President Don Hoyle to nominate "an individual who has made a sustained and significant contribution to furthering public understanding of the humanities in their community." The award is named after the prize-winning oral historian and author, Studs Terkel, who documented 20th century America through the words and voices of ordinary people.Recipients are selected for their service in the humanities, which include significant and sustained efforts to further public understanding of, and appreciation for, the humanities at the community level.
