William and Edwyna Gilbert Award Recipients

Originally the “William Gilbert Award,” named in memory of William Gilbert, a longtime AHA member and distinguished scholar-teacher of the Renaissance at the University of Kansas, this prize was renamed the William and Edwyna Gilbert Award in 2012 after Edwyna Gilbert passed away and left an additional $110,000 to supplement the original $10,000 bequest for the award. This award recognizes outstanding contributions to the teaching of history through the publication of journal and serial articles.
