Welcome to the Norwegian-American Historical Association (NAHA). We’re pleased you found us and hope you will explore our website and become a supporter of our organization. Awaiting your exploration within our archives and our publications are countless fascinating stories of Norwegian immigration.
The Norwegian-American Historical Association was created in 1925 to locate, collect, preserve and interpret the stories, documents, transitions, photographs and records of the Norwegian immigrants to the United States. Our job is to tell their stories with accuracy, integrity, and liveliness.
In NAHA’s 90 year history, the archive has collected diaries, journals, letters, documents, newspapers, pamphlets, and photographs to become a treasure trove of information for researchers, family historians, and anyone interested in the Norwegian-American past. Our publication program is highly regarded and responsible for more than 100 publications on a wide variety of Norwegian-American topics.
We encourage you to join the nearly 2,000 other dedicated members of NAHA who are found in 48 of the 50 states and abroad. This is important work. Your membership assists us in continuing our ongoing efforts to collect and preserve these documents and to share the larger story through our publications program. There are several levels of membership available. We encourage you to select a level that includes a tax-deductible gift to NAHA in addition to the basic rate membership rate of $55.00.
Members receive each new publication as they appear. Members also receive a 25% discount off the purchase of our previous publications and are favored clients in the use of the archives. Additionally, you will be sent the members’ newsletter, which keeps you informed about the additions to the archives and activities of the Association.
I cordially invite you to join NAHA. We look forward to working with you to preserve the history of the Norwegian immigrant experience.
Amy Boxrud, Director
