Previous recipients of this award are Paul T. Baker, C. Loring Brace, Alice M. Brues, Jane E. Buikstra, Eugene Giles, Stanley M. Garn, Morris Goodman, F. Clark Howell, William W. Howells, Francis E. Johnston, Gabriel W. Lasker, Michael Little, Frank B. Livingstone, M.F. Ashley Montagu, Charles Oxnard, William S. Pollitzer, Derek F. Roberts, Elwyn Simons, Robert Sokal, T. Dale Stewart, Phillip V. Tobias, and Sherwood L. Washburn.
There are two steps in the nomination process. The first is the identification of potential nominees through the completion of a form in the call for papers that will be provided upon request by the chair of the AAPA Nominations Committee. The AAPA Executive Committee evaluates the nominations each year a short list of nominees is identified. A more detailed letter of nomination may then be requested from the original nominator along with a brief curriculum vitae of the nominee. The Executive Committee will make the final selection. The award of an engraved bronze statue of Charles Darwin is presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists.
