General Information

The American Historical Association (AHA) is a nonprofit membership organization founded in 1884 and chartered by Congress in 1889 for the promotion of historical studies, the collection and preservation of historical documents and artifacts, and the dissemination of historical research, to act "in the interest of American history, and of history in America."

As the largest historical society in the United States, the AHA serves as the umbrella organization for historians. In this role, it conducts an active scholarly and professional program for historians interested in every period and geographical area. Among its 15,000 members are faculty at secondary schools and two- and four-year colleges and universities, independent historians, and historians in museums, historical organizations, libraries and archives, government, and other areas.


The AHA publishes a wide variety of periodical, annual, anniversary, and other publications of service and interest to the historical profession and the general public. The Association's journal is The American Historical Review, the major historical journal in the United States. Published five times a year, the Review includes scholarly articles and critical reviews of current publications in all fields of history.

Perspectives, the newsletter of the AHA, appears nine times a year. The core of the publication is articles on topics of professional interest. Among the Association's annual publications are the Directory of History Departments and Organizations in the United States and Canada; Grants, Fellowships, and Prizes of Interest to Historians; Directory of Affiliated Societies; Annual Report; and Annual Meeting Program. The Association also produces several pamphlet series as well as other publications for and about the historical profession.

Electronic Publishing

Over the next year, the Association will begin publishing some information electronically as well as in print form. The electronic communication function of the AHA is expected to grow rapidly in the near future with online issues of the AHR now available.
