The Project

The National Historic Recognition Project is an ongoing project by a consortium of national and regional disability organizations to recognize the contributions in the field of intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). This project has resulted in a slate of awards that have been presented twice, once in 1999, covering a century, and again in 2020, covering a 20-year span.

Honorees gratefully acknowledge Margaret "Peg" Gould for her leadership of the 20th Century Project and the 2020 National Honors project.
