One award is given annually to the author of the best book in American social 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.
One copy of each entry, clearly labeled "2018 Merle Curti Social 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. (Please see "Submission Policy" at right.)
