NYSHA Annual Membership Meeting and Reception
Dr. Timothy Shannon, Professor of History at Gettysburg College, will address members of the New York State Historical Association at the 110th Annual Meeting to be held Thursday, July 18, at 4:00 p.m. in the Louis C. Jones Center of The Farmers' Museum in Cooperstown, New York. The meeting is open to NYSHA members.
Dr. Shannon's keynote is entitled "The Baronet and the Mohawk Chief: William Johnson and Hendrick in Colonial New York." He teaches Early American, Native American, and British history. He is the author of Iroquois Diplomacy on the Early American Frontier (2008), Atlantic Lives: A Comparative Approach to Early America (2004), and Indians and Colonists at the Crossroads of Empire: The Albany Congress of 1754 (2000), which won the Dixon Ryan Fox Prize from the New York State Historical Association and the Distinguished Book Award from the Society of Colonial Wars. He is also co-author with Victoria Bissell Brown of Going to the Source: The Bedford Reader in Early American History (second edition, 2008). His articles have appeared in the William and Mary Quarterly, the New England Quarterly, and Ethnohistory. He is currently working on a biography of eighteenth-century Indian captive Peter Williamson.
The annual meeting will also reveal the winners of the Paul S. Kerr History Prize, awarded each year to the best article published in New York History; the Dixon Ryan Fox Manuscript Prize, presented each year to the best unpublished, book-length monograph dealing with some aspect of the history of New York State; and the Henry Allen Moe Prize for Catalogs of Distinction in the Arts. A reception follows the meeting at 5:30 p.m. on the lower level of the Fenimore Art Museum. Docents will be available to guide visitors through the Fenimore Art Museum and the 2013 feature exhibitions between 2:00 and 4:00 p.m.
