Miramichi Historians' Prize in New Brunswick History


A $1,500 prize awarded annually on the recommendation of the Department of History to a Fredericton campus undergraduate student who submitted an outstanding essay or report on New Brunswick history or biography to satisfy a regular course requirement. Preference will be given to studies done on Miramichi or Northumberland County topics. In the event that no qualifying essay or report on such topics is submitted in a given year, the award will be granted for superior achievement in similar work for a course on New Brunswick, Atlantic, or Canadian history. This prize is funded by Professor Emeritus Willis D. Hamilton, author of the Dictionary of Miramichi Biography and other works, in honour of Robert Cooney, Louise Manny, W. Harold Davidson, James A. Fraser and others whose writings have helped preserve Miramichi and provincial history.
