Anne Hyde Wins Bancroft Award

March 15, 2012

Dear Campus Community,

I am so proud to share with you the news that a member of our faculty — Anne Hyde, the William J. Hochman Professor of History — has been awarded the prestigious Bancroft Prize. Anne received the award for her book “Empires, Nations and Families: A History of the North American West,1800-1860.” As you may be aware, the Bancroft Prize is one of the most celebrated awards in its field, and is given annually by the trustees of Columbia University. There were 175 books considered for the 2012 prize. I hope you will join me in congratulating Anne on her impressive accomplishment.

Best regards,
