About John E. Dolibois History Prize
The Michael J. Colligan History Project of Miami University Hamilton, in association with the Hamilton Community Foundation, confers the John E. Dolibois History Prize.
The Prize is given for substantial and sustained efforts to promote the teaching of and learning about history in the community and throughout the nation. The first two recipients of this prize were Ambassador John E. Dolibois himself and former Miami University President Phillip R. Shriver.
The prize consists of a citation and an engraved glass sculpture depicting the torch of the Statue of Liberty.
On October 12, the 2016 John E. Dolibois History Prize was awarded to David McCullough (pictured). Mr. McCullough is a recipient of the National Book Award and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, and is the two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author of Truman, John Adams, The Wright Brothers and numerous other award-winning books.
