This $100 prize is given each spring for the best paper written by a graduate student for HIST 6013. Any student who was enrolled in HIST 6013 during the previous year is eligible. The prize is named for James B. Whiteside, faculty emeritus, who for many years taught HIST 6013 in the Department of History.
Nominations come from the faculty members who have taught HIST 6013 during the year. The Graduate Studies Committee considers the papers and chooses the winner in advance of the Department’s awards ceremony in late spring.
