Scope and Content

Comprises of the minutes of the meetings of the Prize Sub Committee, 1887-1911.

Administrative / Biographical History

Prizes appear to have been awarded as a means to encourage members from very early in the AA's history - the first Brown Book of 1861 documenting prizes for the best essay and for the best sketches produced by the Class of Design. A Prize Sub Committee to administer and judge the awards is first mentioned in the Brown Book of 1868/69.
