Helen & Howard R. Marraro Prize Recipients
The American Historical Association’s Marraro Prize is one of three annual awards for the best book or article on Italy established by Howard R. Marraro (b. 1897), a historian of Italian culture. Marraro made bequests to the American Historical Association, the American Catholic Historical Association, and the Society for Italian Historical Studies to allow each association to award a prize in Italian history in any epoch, in Italian cultural history, or in Italian American relations. All submissions must be the work of resident citizens of the United States or Canada.
