In its continuing efforts to recognize and promote high standards in the field of oral history, Oral History in the Mid-Atlantic Region (OHMAR) created an annual award for outstanding and continuing contributions to oral history. The award, named for Forrest C. Pogue, who pioneered oral history in combat during World War II, and who served as an early president of the Oral History Association, was presented to Forrest C. Pogue (1912-1996), the first recipient of the award, by Benis M. Frank, president of OHMAR. Pogue was director of The Dwight D. Eisenhower Institute for Historical Research at the Smithsonian.
