Joel Palmer Award

Each year, the Oregon Historical Quarterly presents the Joel Palmer Award to the author of the best article published in the journal during the previous year. The award was established by Omar C. "Slug" Palmer and William J. Lang in honor of their ancestor Joel Palmer, an Oregon pioneer. It is voted on by members of the Quarterly's Editorial Advisory Board. In addition to the first-place prize, which carries with it $300, two authors are presented honorable mention.
