Jane King Hession won first place in 2022 David Gebhard prize for her book “Elizabeth Scheu Close: A Life in Modern Architecture” (University of Minnesota Press), presented by the Minnesota Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians (MNSAH). Pioneering her influence on modern architecture in Minnesota and beyond, Scheu Close and her husband, Winston, spent 60 years with Close Associates, a firm dedicated to modern design.

The winning publications in this 13th round of awards span people and buildings from the mid-1800s to the present day, revealing some of the social, cultural and economic forces that result in the built environment we see today.

An honorable mention was awarded to Jeanne Kosfeld and Richard Kronick for “Neighborhood Architecture—Irvine Park Saint Paul: A Coloring Book” (Ramsey County Historical Society), and the winner of Best Paper was Jeremiah E. Ellis for “St. Paul’s Distinct Leadership Tradition: A Century of the Sterling Club” (Ramsey County History magazine), the story of the founding in 1919 by African-American leaders of St. Paul of an organization that established a place for a community that was unwelcome in many Twin Towns settlements at the time. The original clubhouse at 315 N. Dale St. was designed by Sterling Club member and architect Clarence “Cap” Wigington.

Architect and researcher Diane Trout-OerteI won for “Built to Last: The Historic Spangenberg Farmhouse”, published in Minnesota History magazine.
