Grants and Prizes Committee

The Grants and Prizes Committee appoints members to the specific prize committees: Herman E. Krooss Prize for Best Dissertation in Business History, K. Austin Kerr Prize, Philip Scranton Best Article Prize, Mira Wilkins Prize, CEBC Halloran Prize in the History of Corporate Responsibility, Martha Moore Trescott Prize, and Ralph Gomory Prize. It also recommends recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award. In these lists, the year always refers to the meeting year; terms begin and end at the annual meeting.
