David Reeder Prize

The David Reeder Prize in Urban History is awarded annually to the student who, in the opinion of the Board of Examiners, has completed the best MA dissertation on any aspect of urban history in the University of Leicester. The prize has been funded by the friends and colleagues of David Reeder (a former colleague at the Centre for Urban History) in recognition of his lifelong commitment to teaching and research in urban history, and his unfailing encouragement to younger scholars.
