Missouri History Book Award

The Missouri History Book Award is given annually to the author of the best book written on the history of Missouri and Missourians. Original scholarship in the form of historical biographies, monographs, and/or general studies is eligible for a $1,500 cash award and a citation.

The subject matter of books nominated for the award should pertain to Missouri-related people, places, institutions, and/or events that have statewide or national significance. Festschrifts, collections of essays, autobiographies, and edited works are not eligible for consideration.

A panel of judges selected by the executive director determines the winner of the award from submissions made by publishers and authors. Download the flyer for 2016 submission details. The 2016 winner will be announced at the 2016 Annual Meeting.
