Alexandria Historical Society seeks award nominees


The Alexandria Historical Society is calling for nominations for the 2010 T. Michael Miller Alexandria History Award, to be presented to a person or persons who have made noteworthy contributions to the preservation of the historic, cultural and artistic heritage of Alexandria. Honorees will be presented with a certificate and gift at a special awards ceremony April 28 at The Lyceum. Four outstanding history students from each of Alexandria’s high schools will also be honored at the ceremony. 

Organizations and interested individuals are invited to submit written nominations to the History Awards Committee of the AHS. Each nomination should be in the form of a narrative, no longer than two pages, which explains in some detail the contributions of the nominee. Copies of the nominee’s work, including publications, should be included. More than one nomination may be offered and the committee may select more than one person to receive the award. 

Nominations should be mailed by March 12 to the Office of Historic Alexandria, 220 N. Washington St., Alexandria, Va. 22314. For more information, contact Bill Dickinson at 703-370-3089 or visit
