The American Historical Association awarded the Herbert Baxter Adams prize for best work in modern European history to our alumna, Anna Krylova, for her Soviet Women in Combat: A History of Violence on the Eastern Front. In addition to being a tribute to Anna’s excellent scholarship, the award is testimony to the quality of Jeff Brooks’ mentorship and the strength of gender studies at Hopkins.

The Herbert Baxter Adams Prize is awarded annually for a distinguished first book by a young scholar in the field of European history. The prize was established in 1905 in memory of the first secretary of the Association, Herbert Baxter Adams of Johns Hopkins University, who was also one of the founders of the Association.
