FOR AN OUTSTANDING BOOK ON 
PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION 
1969-2002

HART SENATE OFFICE BUILDING, WASHINGTON D.C.

The National Academy of Public Administration recognizes outstanding contributions to the literature of public administration through presentation of the Louis Brownlow Book Award. The award is for an outstanding example of a literary work that provides new insights, fresh analysis, and original ideas on a significant development, a government agency's performance, or another public administration or public policy topic. The award is the namesake of distinguished administrator Louis Brownlow, who, during the Roosevelt era, chaired the Presidential Committee on Administrative Management, which strongly advocated strengthening the presidency and executive branch organizations to provide sufficient support for executive initiatives.
