Congratulations to AHA member and former president Mary Beth Norton (Cornell Univ.), who has been awarded the 2021 George Washington Prize for her book 1774: The Long Year of Revolution. Co-sponsored by George Washington’s Mount Vernon, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and Washington College, the George Washington Prize “recognizes the past year’s best works on the nation’s founding era, especially those that have the potential to advance a broad public understanding of early American history.”
