The 2001 Conference, to be held on October 11-13 at the historic Radisson Admiral Semmes Hotel in the heart of downtown Mobile, will address any approved topic in Gulf South History. Special sessions will celebrate Mobile's Tricentennial and a Professional Workshop will explore Oral History Practices and Procedures.
The Association sponsors the William S. Coker Award for the Best Graduate Level Paper presented at the annual conference. The prize-winning paper receives a $250.00 cash prize and is eligible for publication in the Association's juried journal the Gulf South Historical Review.
