One award is given annually to the author of the best book in American intellectual history. Merle Curti was president of the OAH 1951–1952.

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 Merle Curti Intellectual History Award Entry," must be mailed directly to the committee members listed below. Each committee member must receive all submissions postmarked by October 2, 2017.

Bound page proofs may be used for books to be published after October 2, 2017 and before January 1, 2018. If a bound page proof is submitted, a bound copy of the book must be received by each committee member postmarked no later than January 8, 2018.

If a book carries a copyright date that is different from the publication date, but the actual publication date falls during the correct timeframe making it eligible, please include a letter of explanation from the publisher with each copy of the book sent to the committee members.
