Gladys Lucile Hall, collection of primary texts for a documentary history of Anglican and Episcopal women in America, and identifying and researching pre-1950 murals created by Episcopal women.

The Ruth Alexander Award of $100 is given annually to a published work (article or book) that best exemplifies the use of local or diocesan history materials in the previous calendar year.  Nominations for this award should be made by  March 1 and should include one copy of the work.

The Malcom and Pat Diesenroth Award of $250 recognizes the outstanding efforts of a parish to preserve or tell its history, especially the stories of women who helped form its congregational life.  These efforts could take many forms and are not limited to traditional written articles or books.  It may be awarded annually depending on nominations.

Finally, there is the Seminary Essay Prize in Women’s History, which awards $250 to the winner.
