The Editors of MFS are proud to announce the winner of the seventh Margaret Church MFS Memorial Prize. Kim McMullen's "The Fiction of Correspondence: LETTERS and History," which appeared in the Autumn issue (Vol. 36, Number 3, 405-420), was judged the best article to appear in 1990. Professor McMullen received $250 and a copy of the certificate appearing opposite.
The outside panel of judges making the selection was composed of Linda Wagner-Martin (chair), Professor of English, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; James Cowan, Professor of English, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and Clayton Koelb, Professor of German and Comparative Literature, University of Chicago.
The Editors of MFS congratulate Professor McMullen, who is Assistant Professor of English at Kenyon College. We are also grateful to the selection committee for the many hours they devoted to selecting this year's winner.
