Richardson and Kirby Win the Bancroft
Posted by: Keir Graff

The winners of the 2007 Bancroft Awards, said by the givers to be “one of the most coveted honors in the field of history,” have been announced:

William James: In the Maelstrom of American Modernism, by Robert D. Richardson (Houghton)

Mockingbird Song, by Jack Temple Kirby (Univ. of North Carolina)

Because these are not works of poetry, the cash prize is only $10,000 for each winner. It’s a good thing that researching, interpreting, and writing about historical events takes so little time!
