The Western Reserve Award is given, when merited, to recognize significant achievements and outstanding contributions to the architectural history of Ohio and the Western Reserve in particular.  Some years, as a memorial to Edmund H. Chapman, Professor of Art History, Case Western Reserve University, a topical book is presented to a local library.  On occasion, WRAH trustees may present an award of achievement.
