Fitzharris receives Simmons Award

Our very own Dr. Joseph C. Fitzharris, Professor Emeritus of History, University of St. Thomas, received the 2018 Edwin H. Simmons Award from the Society for Military History.

The Edwin H. Simmons Award (formerly the Victor Gondos Award) is presented for long, distinguished or particularly outstanding service to the Society for Military History.

Established in 1933 as the American Military History Foundation, renamed in 1939 the American Military Institute, and renamed again in 1990 the Society for Military History, the Society is devoted to stimulating and advancing the study of military history. Its membership (today more than 2700) has included many of the world’s most prominent scholars, soldiers, and citizens interested in military history.
