Cruikshank Medals

Riddell Award

The medals were struck in memory of the services rendered to the Ontario Historical Society by Brigadier-General E. A. Cruikshank and were administered by the Society. Awards were originally given in two categories: historical writing in Ontario History and Founders for service to the Society. There were two prizes for the best article in Ontario History: by a professional historian and by a non-professional. This changed when it became difficult to separate professionals from non-professionals. Originally the award was a silver medal, but this was replaced by a certificate. Only the winners for historical writing are listed. In 1980 the Society's award system was changed and the writing award was continued by the Riddell Award (which see).
