OAH Presidential Address Program
Since 2001, OAH has published an awards ceremony and presidential address booklet for each annual meeting. Starting in 2018, the awards ceremony and presidential address booklets began to be published separately.
It is the policy of the OAH to honor those applicants who submit their applications on or before the stated deadline date.
Applications that are not postmarked by close of business on the deadline date will not be considered. Bound page proofs may be used for books to be published after the postmark deadline for each book award and before January 1 of the following year. Electronic files will not be accepted. If a bound page proof is submitted, a bound copy of the entry must be sent to each committee member and postmarked no later than January 7 of the year in which the award or prize is given. Bound page proofs not followed with a bound copy of the book will not be considered. If a book carries a copyright date that is different from the publication date, but the actual publication date falls during the correct time frame, making it eligible, please include a letter of explanation from the publisher with each copy of the book sent to the committee members.
