Troyer Steele Anderson Prize

The Troyer Steele Anderson Prize is awarded on a regular basis to the person whom Council considers to have made the most outstanding contribution to the advancement of the purposes of the Association. The prize was established by a bequest from Frank Maloy Anderson (1871–1961), a diplomatic and constitutional historian and a life member of the AHA, in honor of the memory of his son, a historian and public servant. Council members on the AHA's Professional Division will serve as the jury and will recommend an individual for approval by the Council.
