Publius Virgilius Rogers Professor of American History Maurice Isserman has been elected to the Society of American Historians (SAH) in recognition of the literary and scholarly distinction of his historical writing.
According to its website, the SAH “was founded in 1939 by American historian and journalist Allan Nevins and several fellow authors for the purpose of promoting literary distinction in historical writing.” It continues to promote its original objectives through “the awarding of prizes, the promotion of historical studies and interests, and cooperation with publishers and other institutions engaged in furthering these aims.”
