THE PRITZKER MILITARY MUSEUM & LIBRARY is proud to partner with Norwich University to help solidify the university as a regional center on military history and affairs. As both a private university and a non-government organization, Norwich and the Museum & Library share strong stakes in the study of military history and affairs as they have a deep impact on the character of who we are as a country. Together, the Museum & Library and Norwich build awareness of the importance of study of military history and affairs and the role of the military in a democracy.
The Museum & Library’s sponsorship of Norwich University Military Writers’ Symposium helps further promote it as a world-class forum that features established and emerging scholars in the field of military history and affairs. In addition, by bringing William E. Colby Award winners to Chicago to be featured on the Museum & Library’s television series Pritzker Military Presents, the Museum & Library draws greater attention to the Award and drives Norwich University’s message and mission into another region.
The Pritzker Military Museum & Library is located in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Open to the public, the Museum & Library features an extensive collection of books, programs, artifacts, and rotating exhibits covering many eras and branches of the military that are available to visitors in person and online. Opened in 2003, the Pritzker Military Museum & Library is a center where citizens and service members come together to learn about military history and affairs. Each year, the Museum & Library awards the prestigious Pritzker Military Museum & Library Literature Award for Lifetime Achievement in Military Writing to recognize a living author who has made a lifetime contribution to the understanding of military history affairs. The Museum & Library is a living memorial to current and former service members and their families and is supported by its members and sponsors.
