The Association’s 105th annual meeting was held in New York City from December 27–30, 1990, at the New York Hilton at Rockefeller Center and the Sheraton Centre Hotel. Many of the profession’s most distinguished members were present to deliver papers and over 700 scholars, including 41 foreign scholars, participated in the three-day meeting. In addition, over two dozen specialized societies met in conjunction with the AHA. Each society held its own sessions, luncheons, and/or meetings, as well as joint sessions with the Association. David Herlihy of Brown University delivered the presidential address on the evening of December 28 and the Association’s book awards, honorary foreign members, the Awards for Scholarly Distinction, the Troyer Steele Anderson Prize, and the Eugene Asher Distinguished Teaching Award were announced.
