Multiple Winners of 2020 Archival History Award: Melanie Shell-Weiss and Greg Weideman

2020 Archival History Award: Melanie Shell-Weiss’s “Good Intentions: Grappling with Legacies of Conflict and Distrust Surrounding a Native American Oral History Project One Generation Later”
2020 Archival History Award: Greg Wiedeman’s “The Historical Hazards of Finding Aids”

At the August 12th meeting of the Archival History Section (of the Society of American Archivists), the 2020 Archival History Award was given to two equally deserving articles:

Melanie Shell-Weiss, Grand Valley State University for “Good Intentions: Grappling with Legacies of Conflict and Distrust Surrounding a Native American Oral History Project One Generation Later” Oral History Review 46:1 (Winter/Spring 2019): 104-133;
and
Greg Weideman, University at Albany, SUNY for “The Historical Hazards of Finding Aids” American Archivist 82, no. 2 (Fall/Winter 2019): 381-420.


This marks the third time that the best article(s) on archival history published in the previous year were awarded by the Archival History Section, a member group of the Society of American Archivists. Each recipient receives a monetary award and certificate.

Every spring, an award committee of the Archival History Section accepts and reviews article nominations. Look for the next call for nominations in early 2021!
