The Society of Architectural Historians will present the SAH Awards for Architectural Excellence at its 8th Annual Awards Gala on Friday, November 17, 2017, at the Racquet Club of Chicago. This year's honorees include Ralph Johnson, FAIA, Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee, and Col (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Ret). 

The Awards Gala provides SAH with critical financial resources to carry out its programs locally, nationally, and internationally. This year’s Gala proceeds will support SAH’s educational programs and publications, including its Buildings of the United States series and SAH Archipedia, and the continued restoration of our landmark headquarters in Chicago, Charnley-Persky House (1891–1892, Adler and Sullivan with Frank Lloyd Wright). The Awards Gala is the Society’s largest annual fundraising event, and your financial support will have a significant impact on our ability to reach new audiences, protect our built heritage, and maintain the landmark entrusted to us.
