James Harvey Robinson Prize Recipients
This honorific prize is offered biennially for the teaching aid that has made the most outstanding contribution to the teaching of history in any field. The Robinson Prize was established in 1974 by Council and first offered in 1978. It is named in honor of James Harvey Robinson (1863–1936), president of the Association in 1929 and a pioneer in new methods and content of history teaching.

For many historians, working with primary sources comes easy; teaching students to engage with primary sources is another matter altogether. With an impressive range of research-based pedagogy and classroom-tested exercises, the site has the potential to influence secondary, collegiate, and graduate history courses across the country. For historians seeking to impart on their students more of what they do, and less of what they know, Teacharchives.org is an invaluable resource.
