Albert J. Beveridge Award

The Albert J. Beveridge Award was established in 1939 in memory of United States Senator Beveridge of Indiana, former secretary and longtime member of the American Historical Association (AHA), through a gift from his wife, Catherine Beveridge and donations from AHA members from his home state. Established on a biennial basis, the award has been given annually since 1945 for the best English-language book on American history (United States, Canada, or Latin America) from 1492 to the present.
