2019 Williams / Lee Steere History Prize

Commencing this year the biennial Lee Steere and Williams essay prizes have been combined to form an annual publication prize for the best new book on WA history. The Lee Steere Prize was inaugurated in 1948 by a grant from pastoralist and philanthropist Sir Ernest Lee Steere, later supplemented by his son, also Sir Ernest. The Williams Prize honours the memory of historian A W (Bert) Williams, chairman of council of the Society 1963-67 and president 1976-78, and funded by Bert and his family.
