Organization: Mississippi Historical Society [link]
Abstract: The Excellence in History Award is given as merited in recognition of an outstanding publication, documentary, podcast, or project contributing to the knowledge of Mississippi history. The winner receives a $300 cash award and is invited as the society’s guest to its annual meeting and honored during the Awards Luncheon. You will recall that this award combines the former Elbert R. Hilliard Oral History Award and Atkinson Award. MHS is especially pleased to have the Civil War & Reconstruction Governors of Mississippi Project as the first winner of this award because it sets a high bar, which is what we want. By recognizing a complex, multi-year project with multiple organizational partners, the Society sets an important precedent for this award. It is richly deserved, and you honor us by letting us honor you and your work. Brother Rogers, Director Programs and Communication Division Mississippi Department of Archives and History
