Approaching Deadline: Nominations for 2019 BHC Book Prizes

The Hagley Prize in Business History is awarded annually to the best book in business history, broadly defined. The prize committee encourages the submission of books from all methodological perspectives. It is particularly interested in innovative studies that have the potential to expand the boundaries of the discipline. Scholars, publishers, and other interested parties may submit nominations. Eligible books can have either an American or an international focus. They must be written in English and be published during the two years (2017 or 2018 copyright) prior to the award.
    The Ralph Gomory Prize, made possible by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, recognizes historical work on the effects of business enterprises on the economic conditions of the countries in which they operate. A prize of $5,000 is awarded annually for a book published in the two years prior to the year of the award (2017 and 2018). Book nominations are accepted from publishers.
     For either award, four copies of the book must accompany a nomination and be submitted to the prize coordinator, Carol Ressler Lockman, Hagley Museum and Library, PO Box 3630, 298 Buck Road, Wilmington DE 19807-0630. The deadline for nominations is November 30, 2018. The prizes will be presented at the annual meeting of the Business History Conference in Cartagena, Colombia, in March 2019.
