Gutenberg-e Prize Recipients

The Gutenberg-e Prize was established in 1999 through the efforts of AHA President Robert Darnton and generous funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The prize competition was intended to encourage the electronic publication of the best history dissertations including those in fields where the traditional monograph has become endangered. The AHA awarded six prizes a year through 2004. Each prize consisted of a $20,000 fellowship to be used by the author for converting the dissertation into an electronic monograph of the highest quality to be published by Columbia University Press.
