Blake-Dodd Prize

Anna Bowman Blake Dodd, a writer of travel essays and French history, left the Academy the residue of her estate when she died in Paris in 1929. Because of the Depression, the fund languished for many years. It now supports the triennial Blake-Dodd Prize of $25,000 for a nonfiction writer.
