Founded in 1979, the Society works to address common concerns, support shared interests, and stimulate discussion across the federal history community. The work of that community takes many forms, including documentary collections, historic preservation and interpretation, institutional histories, museum exhibitions, oral history programs, policy research, records and information management, and reference services. The Society’s membership is similarly diverse, including not only historians but also archaeologists, archivists, consultants, curators, editors, librarians, preservationists, and others engaged in or committed to government history.
