The Autry Institute
The Autry Institute promotes research and educational activities, encourages the development of pathbreaking scholarship, and reaches a broad audience through programs and publications.
Significant book, serial, archival, and audiovisual collections about the historical and the mythical West are at the heart of the Autry Library's collection.
The Braun Research Library, located at the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, is one of the nation’s most important library and archive collections related to American Indians.
The Women of the West project at the Autry supports programs, exhibitions, collections, research, and education dedicated to diverse women’s experiences in the West.
Programs and Public Events produces a wide variety of lectures, workshops, symposia, plays, concerts, film series, artist demonstrations, and family festivals that augment our exhibitions and galleries.
The Institute currently offers three awards: the Maverick Prize, the Autry Public History Prize, and the Butcher Scholar Award.
The Autry Institute's libraries annually award research fellowships to support scholarly projects in all areas of the study of the peoples and cultures of the American West.
