Grigg is proud to have worked with Jewish Historical Society of Michigan on “Michigan Jewish History.” We designed, printed and mailed out this 6" x 9" 124-page perfect-bound journal. We also share in their excitement after they received a 2020 State History Award from The Historical Society of Michigan!
The Historical Society of Michigan announced its 2020 State History Awards. The Society presents the State History Awards every year to individuals and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to the appreciation, collection, preservation and/or promotion of state and local history.
The awards are the highest recognition presented by the Historical Society of Michigan, the state’s official historical society and oldest cultural organization.
The Historical Society of Michigan presented the 2020 State History Award for Communications: Printed Periodicals to the Jewish Historical Society of Michigan for its annual journal, “Michigan Jewish History.” In 1960, the journal’s first issue was published with the goal of advancing the discipline of American Jewish history while striking a balance between academic scholarship and remaining accessible to a non-academic audience. On the 60th anniversary of “Michigan Jewish History” in 2020, journal staff enacted broad changes to the venerable publication, making it even more useful for scholars, students and the general public. As well as essays, personal reflections and creative-writing pieces, the publication now presents peer-reviewed scholarly works.
