Moses Levy of Florida


The Florida Historical Society awarded the 2006 Presidential Award of Distinction to Chris S. Monaco in absentia for his book Moses Levy of Florida:  Jewish Utopian and Antebellum Reformer.  The Society awards those individuals whose scholarship in the field of Florida history is ground-breaking in scope or represents a revived interest in a distinct area of study.

Monaco's book on Moses Levy is regarded as a major      contribution to ethnographic studies in Florida history and to the field of American Jewish history in general.  According to Dr. Robert A. Taylor, President of the Florida Historical Society, "Monaco's persistence in solving the mysterious and muddled life of Moses Levy is admirable.  This is a book that is deserving of recognition and which should be included in the thorough and complete study of Florida's  history and in the ever-evolving thread of American history."
