H-Sport Archive Project

The H-Sport Archive Project provides information about archival collections that are of interest to sport scholars.  While many sport museums and sport organizations are well-known to sport scholars, the H-Sport Archive Project highlights sport collections held at non-sport archives.

Scholars interested in using these collections should consult the archive's website and contact the archive directly regarding visiting the archive and any specific regulations pertaining to accessing the collections.

The H-Sport Archive Project is intended to be international in scope to appeal to a wide variety of scholars.  The current H-Sport Archive Project contributors, along with their areas of focus, are:

Heather Dichter, Ithaca College (US, Europe)
Josh Howard, Middle Tennessee State University (US)
Stijn Knuts, KU Leuven (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg)
Keith Rathbone, Northwestern University (France, US)
Antonio Sotomayor, University of Illinois (Latin America, US)
Rachel Vaughn, Aberystwyth University (UK)

Scholars interested in joining the H-Sport Archive Project should contact the H-Sport editors. H-Sport greatly appreciates the work of past contributors.

The H-Sport Archive Project team also welcomes suggestions of collections to include.
