The Journal of Policy History awarded Peter Shulman, assistant professor of history, the Ellis Hawley Prize for his article, “The Making of a Tax Break: The Oil Depletion Allowance, Scientific Taxation, and Natural Resource Policy in the Early Twentieth Century.” Shulman was one of two award winners this year.

The prize is awarded for the best article published by a junior scholar in the previous two years in the journal. Shulman’s article appeared in the summer 2011 issue.

The other prize winner also has a Case Western Reserve University connection: Daniel Williams, assistant professor of history at University of West Georgia, graduated from Case Western Reserve in 1999.
