Honoring Historian and Pulitzer Prize Winning Author Jon Meacham

On November 17, the National Archives Foundation will honor Pulitzer Prize-winning author and presidential historian Jon Meacham with our prestigious Records of Achievement Award for his commitment to chronicling the American story.

The Records of Achievement Award is the highest honor bestowed by the National Archives Foundation to an individual whose contributions have fostered a broader national awareness of the history and heritage of the United States as exemplified in the National Archives’ records.

The theater program will include an interview between Michael Beschloss and Jon Meacham.
