BOZEMAN -- Montana State University historian Timothy James LeCain was recently awarded a $2,400 research grant from the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University. The grant will fund research on LeCain's next book project, "The Fertile Stones," an environmental history of phosphate mining in Southeast Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and other areas around the globe. The Charles Redd Center was established in 1972 through a gift from Charles and Annaley Redd, prominent southeastern Utah ranchers and philanthropists. The center promotes study of the Intermountain West.
