The Whitehill Prize in Early American History
The Colonial Society of Massachusetts announces the 2013 Walter Muir Whitehill Prize in Early American History. This prize of $2,500 was established in memory of Walter Muir Whitehill, for many years Editor of Publications for the Colonial Society. The prize is awarded for a distinguished essay on early American history (up to 1825), not previously published, with preference being given to New England subjects. The Society hopes that the prize may be awarded annually. By arrangement with the editors of the New England Quarterly, the Society will have the winning essay published in an appropriate issue of the journal. Essays are now being accepted for consideration. All manuscripts submitted for the 2013 prize must be postmarked no later than December 31, 2013. The Society expects to announce the winning candidate in the spring of 2014. For more information vist www.northeastern.edu/neq/prizespecifications.html.
