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.
