2012

                                                        The first Alexander Macomb Historical Award was presented in 2004 under the guidance of the

                                                Macomb County Historical Commission.  The commission had been put in place in the early part of the 21st

                                                Century to promote and preserve the history of our notable county. The commission consisted of residents

                                                who were long-standing supporters and enthusiasts of Macomb County history.

                                                        The award itself, was named after General Alexander Macomb, a Michigan native who went on to

                                                become a renowned U.S. military figure.  In 1818, then Michigan Governor, Lewis Cass, gave the general the

                                                wonderful honor of having Michigan's third-established county - Macomb - named after him.

                                                         In a 2011 Macomb County Historical Commission press release, Commissioner, Ray Glime, provided

                                                this explanation of the award:



                          The Alexander Macomb Historical Award is presented "to an exemplary individual (or organization) who                                           has demonstrated a long-term commitment to the culture, education, and preservation of local history and    

                          architecture for the pleasure and welfare of the citizens of Macomb County." (Glime, 2011)


           In 2011, the commission turned the reigns over to the Macomb County Heritage Alliance to continue the tradition of presenting the honor of the Alexander Macomb Historical Award.  In the early part of each year, the award committee begins gathering nominations and a selection is made based on criteria which supports the mission that Ray Glime so eloquently stated in 2011.  The award(s) are presented to the honoree(s) at the Macomb County Heritage Alliance Annual Meeting, which is generally held in April each year.
