The Society of Automotive Historians was formed to encourage the research, preservation, recording, compilation and publication of historical material concerning the development of the automobile and related subjects, from inception to the present day.
For its members, the SAH provides a unique camaraderie and an information exchange network through which other people with similar interests can be located. The Society’s membership also includes corporations, museums and other institutions that support the preservation of our motoring heritage for future generations to appreciate.
Founded in the USA in 1969, the SAH currently has nearly a thousand members from all walks of life in more than twenty-six different countries around the world. These people included professional writers, archivists, curators, individual private collectors of literature or automobilia, and enthusiasts who simply enjoy exploring motoring history.
If you have read this far it indicates that your share our passion for the history of motor vehicles, so why not join The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain – new members always receive an especially warm welcome.
The Society organises two Seminars each year, one in the spring and the other in the autumn, allowing members to meet face-to-face. Held at different venues around the country, Seminars have members and guest speakers giving presentations that cover a wide variety of motoring-related topics – and usually generate lively debate.
By becoming part of The Society of Automotive Historians in Britain you will receive more than a dozen authoritative publications each year, all written and edited by people keen to share their specialist knowledge and expertise. The Society publishes SAHB Times, a quarterly newsletter with items about members’ activities, short articles, letters, requests for information and classified adverts.
In addition, there is the annual Aspects of Motoring History – an acclaimed book produced by the Society containing in-depth articles that cover both ancient and modern automotive subjects.
The parent SAH publishes two periodicals devoted to automotive history. SAH Journal is a bi-monthly newsletter which has information about the Society and other noteworthy events, short feature articles, book reviews, etc.; this is circulated to SAHB members in electronic form, unless a printed copy is requested (at an extra £5 per annum). The occasional magazine Automotive History Review contains longer features, most of which are based on new independent research and analysis.
The SAHB publishes its own Membership Directory in printed form. The US SAH International Membership Directory is accessed from their website www.autohistory.org using your membership number.
The Internet has now become an integral part of daily life. Therefore, the Society keeps a register of the most informative motoring-related websites which is available to members. The SAHB website is www.autohistory.org.uk; the parent SAH website is www.autohistory.org.
