Good’s Book Receives Prize

Cassandra Good, associate editor of the Papers of James Monroe, received the Mary Jurich Nickliss Prize from the Organization of American Historians for her book, Founding Friendships (Oxford, 2015).  The prize, awarded annually, recognizes the most original book in U.S. women’s and/or gender history.  The prize committee commended the book’s “remarkable body of evidence” and said that it “greatly enlarges our understanding of gender in the early republic.”  Good received the prize in an award ceremony in Providence, R.I., on April 9.
