Nancy Lyman Roelker Mentorship Award Recipients
This award was established in 1991 in tribute to Nancy Lyman Roelker (1915–93), to honor her career and concern for students. It honors teachers of history who taught, guided, and inspired their students in a way that changed their lives. Mentoring is as important to the discipline of history as fine scholarship and good teaching. The ideal mentor is forthright, supportive, and constructively critical, committed to the student as a person, regardless of age or career goals.
