The Southern Historical Association
The Southern Historical Association was organized November 2, 1934. Its objectives are the promotion of interest and research in southern history, the collection and preservation of the South's historical records, and the encouragement of state and local historical societies in the South. As a secondary purpose the Association fosters the teaching and study of all areas of history in the South.
H-South and the SHA have joined in a new initiative to develop the H-South network into the central resource for scholars in southern studies.
