Manuscript Group 475
RECORDS OF THE STUDENT HISTORIANS OF PENNSYLVANIA
1940 - 1998
7 cubic feet


An organization affiliated with both the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and the Pennsylvania Department of Education, the Pennsylvania Federation of Junior Historians was organized in 1942. In 1982 the group reorganized and incorporated under the non-profit corporation laws as the Student Historians of Pennsylvania, Inc., at 632 West Main Street, Ephrata, Pennsylvania. Its purpose was to encourage young people to become actively involved in historical endeavors, to provide opportunities for interested students to participate in historical activities, to provide teachers with materials and experiences at Pennsylvania historic sites relating to the social studies curriculum, and to arouse interest in the past by publication of historical materials. Included are by-laws, minutes, reports, publications, conference materials, correspondence, and membership lists. The bulk of the records are administrative materials covering the period 1980 through 1999, the year in which the organization was disbanded.

As of October 2009, this collection remains unprocessed.
