On November 5th at the Annual Meeting of the American Musicological Society in Vancouver, Canada, W. Anthony Sheppard received the H. Colin Slim Award for his article “Puccini and the Music Boxes,” which appeared in the Journal of the Royal Musical Association in spring 2015.
The H. Colin Slim Award honors each year a musicological article of exceptional merit, published during the previous year in any language and in any country by a scholar who is past the early stages of her or his career. Sheppard’s article was selected for open access publication and is available.
Sheppard is the first scholar at a liberal arts college to receive this award. In 2002 he received the AMS Alfred Einstein Award for best article published by a scholar in the early stages of his or her career.
