ABILENE, Kan. (AP) _ A clerk at the Dwight D. Eisenhower
Presidential Library and Museum in Abilene is being recognized for
her efforts to tell the story of the Eisenhower family.

Linda Kuntz received the Archivist's Award for Outstanding
Achievement during a ceremony Thursday at the National Archives and
Records Administration in Washington. The award was presented by
David Ferriero, archivist of the United States.

Kuntz was recognized for her living history efforts at the
Abilene museum and the Eisenhower home on the grounds of the
center. She has been the project coordinator for a garden planted
near the home using seeds and tools from the early 1900s.

Re-enactors wearing period clothing portray Eisenhower's mother,
Ike and his brothers, while tending the garden, playing games and
walking around the complex.
