This collection is comprised of the records of the American Humanist Association (AHA). Officially founded in 1941, the AHA is a member organization that advocates progressive values and equality for humanists, atheists, freethinkers, and the non-religious with members and local chapters across the United States. The Association ensures a humanist point of view is represented through lobbying and legislative efforts, grassroots activism, abundant programming, and an annual conference to work on issues of concern. The collection is 34 linear feet and materials include Board of Directors and annual meeting minutes, organizing documents, conference records, committee and programming documentation, reports, correspondence and memoranda, and records of the Humanist Press Association and “The Humanist” publication. Collection materials are dated from 1926 to 1999, with the bulk of the material from the 1950s to the 1980s.
