Paige Glotzer Receives Best Book in North American Urban History Award

Paige Glotzer portraitCongratulations to Professor Paige Glotzer on receiving the 2021 Kenneth Jackson Award from the Urban History Association for How the Suburbs Were Segregated: Developers and the Business of Exclusionary Housing, 1890-1960 (Columbia University Press, 2020)! This award is given for the best book in North American urban history published in 2020. According to the award announcement, “Glotzer’s How the Suburbs Were Segregated is a fresh and compelling examination of the real estate industry over the course of nearly a century and how its leaders channeled private investment and structured public policy to support racially segregated suburban residential development in the United States.”

Professor Glotzer recorded a brief video message for the UHA’s virtual awards ceremony here:

How the Suburbs Were Segregated was also a finalist for the Hagley Prize in Business History from the Business History Conference earlier this year.
