Dr hab. Anna Mazurkiewicz receives Haiman Award

During the jubilee 75th conference of the Polish American Historical Association, Dr hab. Anna Mazurkiewicz, associate professor from the Faculty of History of the University of Gdańsk, was presented with a Haiman Award.

This is the most prestigious award granted by the Polish American Historical Association, an American scientific association founded in 1944. It has been presented annually since 1966 “for an outstanding contribution in the field of Polish American studies”. It was established in honour of Mieczysław Haiman (1888-1949), writer, journalist, translator and Polish-American activist, co-founder and statutory member of the Polish American Historical Association, first curator of the Polish Museum of America in Chicago, who popularised Polish American history and research.
