The Computer History Museum Prize is awarded to the author of an
outstanding book in the history of computing broadly conceived, published
during the prior three years. The prize of $1,000 is awarded by SIGCIS, the
Special Interest Group for Computers, Information and Society. SIGCIS is
part of the Society for the History of Technology.

In 2012 the prize was endowed in perpetuity through a generous bequest from
the estate of Paul Baran, a legendary computer innovator and entrepreneur
best known for his work to develop and promote the packet switching
approach on which modern networks are built. Baran was a longtime supporter
of work on the history of information technology and named the prize to
celebrate the contributions of the Computer History Museum to that field.
