2014 Gala Dinner
2012 Gala Dinner
The New York Academy of History is a not-for-profit organization consisting of people who have distinguished themselves in the practice of New York history. It aims to encourage its study, advocate for its strength, and represent the interests of those who actually work in classrooms, archives, historical societies, libraries, and other venues.
Membership, by invitation only, is limited to persons with a demonstrated record of accomplishment in New York history as authors, archivists, public historians, teachers, librarians, administrators, and similar achievement. We have a distinguished group of approximately 200 people who have been chosen by the Fellows. Residence in the state is not required. This not-for-profit group (5013c), founded in 2007, was incorporated in the State of New York in 2008.
The NYAH hopes to unify the historical community and defend the interests of New York state history. The NYAH recognizes the accomplishments of its members by awarding the Herbert H. Lehman Prize for distinction in scholarship and for distinction in service. It publishes a informal e-newsletter, holds formal and informal meetings, and cosponsors conferences.
