Awards and Prizes

Members can nominate worthy individuals for The Samuel Eliot Morison Prize, which recognizes not any one specific achievement, but a body of contributions in the field of military history, extending over time and reflecting a spectrum of scholarly activity contributing significantly to the field; and for The Edwin H. Simmons Award for distinguished and particularly outstanding service to the Society for Military History by sending a maximum two page PDF statement of nomination to the Executive Director at [email protected].

The Morison Prize and Simmons Award winners are chosen by vote of the Society officers and trustees.  Nominations for these awards are due to the Executive Director by December 31, 2016.  Past award winners are listed under each prize below.
