Jackson Wins Coley Award
Harvey H. Jackson, professor of history and head of the Department of History and Foreign
Languages at Jacksonville State University, was presented the C. J. Coley Award for his book “Inside Alabama: A Personal History
of My State,” published by the University of Alabama Press.
The Coley Award is presented by the Alabama Historical Association for the best book on Alabama history with a particular
local emphasis published in the previous two years.
The Award is named for the late Judge C. J. Coley, who through his support for the Alabama State Archives and the preservation
of the battlefield at Horseshoe Bend, left a lasting legacy to the people of this state.
