The Management History Division - although one of the smaller Divisions in the Academy - is also one of the oldest. Management historians played a seminal role in the formation and the early development of the Academy. Among these was John F. Mee, who served as the Academy's 7th President in 1952. The long-time Head of Management Studies at the University of Indiana, Mee was an active contributor to the world around him, serving as a Colonel in the United States air-force in WWII and as a senior advisor to the Truman administration. In recognition of Mee's contribution to the Division, the MHD award for the top paper given at the Annual Meeting is the John F Mee Award for Outstanding Contribution. Rivalling this award, is the Journal of Management History Award for the Best International Paper in Management History with an International Theme; an award that is supported by Emerald, the publisher of the Journal of Management History. In 2016, as in most other years, the papers awarded both the John F Mee Award and the Journal of Management History award were published in the Academy's Best Paper Proceedings.
