This just in from Dr. Melanie Beals Goan, chair of the Herring Graduate Student Writing Prize Committee.
The George C. Herring Graduate Student Writing Award is awarded to a graduate student who has written an outstanding paper while attending a Kentucky university. The article-length paper may be on any historical topic.
This year the Herring Prize goes to two winners:
- Bethany Sharpe, “Humanity Begins at Home: America’s First Refugees and the Roots of U.S. Humanitarianism” (University of Kentucky, Dr. Jane Calvert, supervising professor)
- Mary Osborne, “Keeping the Faith: The American and Canadian Legions Construct Memories of the First World War, 1919-1941” (University of Kentucky, Dr. James Albisetti, supervising professor).
Both winners will receive a $100 check and a certificate. Dr. George Herring has graciously offered again this year to support KATH in awarding these cash prizes.
Competition was fierce this year! We had ten very good submissions.
Congratulations to all!
