2010 George Washington Book Prize Winner

Plain, Honest Men

The 2010 George Washington Book Prize has been awarded to Richard Beeman for his book Plain, Honest Men: The Making of the American Constitution (Random House).

The George Washington Book Prize is one of the nation's largest literary awards for early American History and it is one of the most generous, with a monetary award greater than the Pulitzer Prize for History and the National Book Award. The prize recognizes the year's best books on the nation's founding era, especially those that have the potential to advance broad public understanding of American History.

Washington College, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in New York City, and the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association collaborated in 2005 to create the prize.
