Mary C. Neth Prize
The Mary C. Neth Prize, created in memory of a professor in the University of Missouri–Columbia Department of History who specialized in women’s history, is given biennially (in odd–numbered years) to the author of the best article on women or gender issues appearing in the preceding two volumes of the Missouri Historical Review. The winner receives $500 and a certificate at the fall annual meeting. A panel of judges appointed by the executive director selects the winner.
