    My newsletter item on the CHA Prizes awarded to History alumnus (PhD 2002) James Dashchuk’s book Clearing the Plains: Disease, Politics of Starvation, and the Loss of Aboriginal Life, failed to mention the most important prize he received (in addition to those in the newsletter), namely the Macdonald Prize.

    “The Sir John A. Macdonald Prize is awarded annually to the best scholarly book in Canadian history and is also to be awarded the Governor General Award for Scholarly Achievement at the Annual Governor General History Awards.”
