SAA’s Archival History Section: Archival History Article Award

The AHS Award Committee is pleased to announce the selection of Patricia Kennedy Grimsted‘s chapter “Pan-European Displaced Archives in the Russian Federation: Still Prisoners of War on the 70th Anniversary of V-E Day” from the 2017 book Displaced Archives edited by James Lowry for the inaugural Archival History Article Award.

AHS created this prize to encourage and reward articles or other short pieces of superior excellence in the field of archival history. The committee was impressed by the depth of knowledge and research the author brought to the topic of displaced European records in Russia. Grimsted’s historical contextualization of the ongoing efforts of repatriation underscores the importance of the history of archives to our contemporary work. Click here for a copy of this excellent work.
