Congratulations to David Brion Davis who was awarded the 2013 National Humanities Medal!

The National Endowment for the Humanities has recognized Dr. Davis's work as a historian, for reshaping our understanding of history. A World War II veteran, Dr. Davis has shed light on the contradiction of a free Nation built by forced labor, and his examinations of slavery and abolitionism drive us to keep making moral progress in our time.  In addition to being an emeritus professor of history at Yale, Dr. Davis serves on the Board of Editors for The New England Quarterly.
