Founder of Blog Makes Good

Ari Kelman, who co-founded this here blog, manages to make good:

Columbia University announced today that two acclaimed works will be awarded the 2014 Bancroft Prize:

Fear Itself: The New Deal and the Origins of Our Time by Ira Katznelson (Liveright Publishing Corporation / W.W. Norton & Company, 2013) and A Misplaced Massacre: Struggling over the Memory of Sand Creek by Ari Kelman (Harvard University Press, 2013).

The Bancroft, for those non-historians in the crowd, is the leading award for historians [of the US, I should update to note], our rough equivalent of a Pulitzer. Nice work!

Ari can be found these days over here.
