David Montgomery Award

The David Montgomery Award is given annually by the OAH with co-sponsorship by the Labor and Working-Class History Association (LAWCHA) for the best book on a topic in American labor and working-class history. Eligible works shall be written in English and deal with United States history in significant ways but may include comparative or transnational studies that fall within these guidelines. The award is given in recognition of David Montgomery’s crucial role in pioneering new approaches to the study of working people and their history. David Montgomery was president of the OAH 1999-2000.

Each entry must be published during the period January 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017.

The award will be presented at the 2018 OAH Annual Meeting in Sacramento, California, April 12–14.

Submission Procedures

One copy of each entry, clearly labeled “2018 David Montgomery Award Entry,” must be mailed directly to the committee members listed below. Each committee member must receive all submissions postmarked by October 2, 2017.
