The Kidger Awards are given each year to one college or university faculty member and one pre-college history teacher for excellence in teaching, research and writing, and service to the profession. The award honors Horace Kidger, a teacher in the Newton School and at Harvard who served as secretary for the NEHTA for a period spanning the two World Wars and some forty years.
