Do you know someone who has assembled an impressive collection of photographs, drawings, ephemera, or other works on paper that help illuminate New England history?
Submit a nomination for the 2014 Prize for Collecting Works on Paper. Historic New England awards the prize annually to a collector or dealer who has helped save a significant collection of historic material that might otherwise have been lost or left unrecognized. The $500 prize is presented at a public reception. This year's nomination deadline is March 27, 2014.
Past winners include an autograph dealer who published a catalogue of material related to American presidents, an author and curator who amassed the largest known collection of Shaker ephemera, and a retired police officer dedicated to documenting the nineteenth- and twentieth-century history of Salem, Massachusetts. Learn more about the prize and its past recipients.
