This prize was established in 1956 by Ralph and Jo Grimes of the Old Hickory Bookshop, Brinklow, Maryland, in memory of Murray Gottlieb, a New York antiquarian book dealer. Since 2010, this award has been sponsored by the MLA History of the Health Sciences Section. In 2016 it was renamed to honor longtime MLA member Erich Meyerhoff. The purpose of the Meyerhoff Prize is to recognize and stimulate interest in the history of the health sciences. The prize is awarded annually for the best unpublished scholarly paper about a topic in the history of the health sciences.
