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.
The Association maintains
two permanent offices: the editorial offices, located
at Rice University, and the secretary-treasurer's office,
located at the University of Georgia.
