History


In 1852, the American Geographical Society began publishing its first academic journal, the Bulletin [and Journal] of the American Geographical Society. This publication continued through 1915, when it was succeeded by the Geographical Review under the direction of the American Geographical Society's Director Isaiah Bowman.[1]

Influential editors include Gladys M. Wrigley, who served as editor from 1920-1949,[2][3] and Wilma B. Fairchild who edited the journal from 1949-1972.[4] Douglas McManis edited the journal from 1978 until 1995 and was credited with maintaining a legacy of high scholarly standards set by his predecessors.[5]

Wrigley-Fairchild Prize


The Wrigley-Fairchild Prize was established by the American Geographical Society in 1994 as a way to promote scholarly writing among new scholars published in the Geographical Review. The prize was given every three years to the author of the best article by an early-career scholar published in the most recent three volumes of the Geographic Review. Beginning in 2020, the Wrigley-Fairchild Prize will be awarded each year. The prize is named for previous editors Gladys M. Wrigley and Wilma B. Fairchild who edited the journal for a combined 52 years.[6]
