Merle Curti Intellectual History Award
DEADLINE: SUBMISSIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY OCTOBER 2, 2017
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.
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.
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 8 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.
