The Glasscock Book Prize, first awarded in 1999, was permanently endowed in December 2000 by Melbern G. Glasscock ’59 and his wife Susanne M. Glasscock, for whom the prize is named. Nominated books are informed by research and expertise, yet appeal to a wider than academic audience. In celebration of the Prize, we hold annual events including a community event and the Prize-winning author's lecture.
Shortlisting committees, comprised of Texas A&M faculty members, graduate students in the humanities and humanistic social sciences, and teachers from the local Bryan and College Station public school districts, deliberated and made the selections.
