Joan Kelly Prize Endowment Restored

AHA Staff, April 2013

When the AHA announced a shortfall in the endowment for the Joan Kelly Memorial Prize in Women's History, the Coordinating Council for Women in History (CCWH) immediately launched an ambitious three-year fundraising drive to restore the prize fund to financial health. Thanks to the energetic fundraising of the CCWH, matched by a gift from an anonymous donor and matched again by generous contributions from the Berkshire Conference of Women Historians and the Journal of Women's History, the Joan Kelly Prize—the only AHA prize for the history of women and/or feminist theory—is now among the best endowed of all the AHA awards. Together, we accomplished this in a single year, and we extend our warmest thanks to all who made this possible.

The Joan Kelly Memorial Prize, first awarded in 1984, is an annual prize for the book in women's history and/or feminist theory that best reflects the high intellectual and scholarly ideals exemplified by the life and work of Joan Kelly.

The Joan Kelly Prize received generous support from:
