First Federal Hall Medal for History to be Awarded to Scholars

Renee BarnesNews

We will award the First Federal Hall Medal for History during our annual Benefit Dinner on Thursday, September 28, at 6:30 p.m., in the Grand Rotunda at Federal Hall.

The Medal is awarded to distinguished scholars who have helped to preserve Federal Hall as a hallowed site and unleash its potential. This year’s recipients include the Pulitzer Prize-winning historian/author Mike Wallace, who is the evening’s keynote speaker. Wallace’s co-authored opus, Gotham, is the first authoritative history of New York City. His new book, Greater Gotham, continues the saga.

Other 2017 recipients of the Medal are, Charlene B. Bickford, Kenneth R. Bowling, Helen E. Veit and William C. diGiacomantonio — historian/editors of the First Federal Congress Project at George Washington University. Their scholarship, through the 22-volume Documentary History of the First Federal Congress, greatly influences our plan for future programs at Federal Hall.
