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:

Georgia Cervin, University of Western Australia (Australasia)
Heather Dichter, De Montfort University (US, Europe)
Josh Howard, Passel Historical Consultants (US)
Stijn Knuts, KU Leuven (Belgium, Netherlands, Luxemburg)
Grégory Quin, Université de Lausanne (Switzerland)
Verity Postlethwaite, University of Worcester (UK)
Keith Rathbone, Northwestern University (France, US)
Ben Sacks, University of Western Australia (Australasia)
Juan Antonio Simón Sanjurjo, Universidad Europea of Madrid (Spain, Italy)
Antonio Sotomayor, University of Illinois (Latin America, US)
Daniel Svensson, KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Scandinavia)
Philippe Vonnard, Université de Lausanne (Switzerland)

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