The Jack Temple Kirby Award is awarded every other year by the Southern Historical Assocation. It was established in 2010 to commemorate the scholarship and SHA service of Jack Kirby, who was the current SHA President when he died in August 2009. In keeping with Professor Kirby's scholarly contributions to southern history, the Kirby Prize will be awarded to authors of journal articles in either southern agricultural or environmental history over a two-year period. The award will be made in odd-numbered years for an article published during the previous two years. Submissions can be made by either the article authors or journal editors. The fifth award will be presented at the annual meeting in Louisville in 2019 for an article published in 2017 or 2018. Off-prints or articles should be submitted to Manager, Southern Historical Association by July 1, 2019.
