Every year, the National Trust for Historic Preservation--which fights for the protection of historic places and buildings--releases a list of its biggest wins and losses. This year, the losses are very sad.
The American Jewish Historical Society is the oldest ethnic, cultural archive in the United States. AJHS provides access to more than 25 million documents and 50,000 books, photographs, art and artifacts that reflect the history of the Jewish presence in the United States from 1654 to the present.
At our home on West 16th street in downtown Manhattan, as well as in our Boston branch on Newbury street, AJHS illuminates American Jewish history through our many archival treasures, scholarship, exhibitions, and public programs. Among the treasures of this heritage are the handwritten original of Emma Lazarus’ The New Colossus, which graces the Statue of Liberty; records of the nation’s leading Jewish communal organizations, and important collections in the fields of education, philanthropy, science, sports, business, and the arts.
The Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) is truly a community-based organization whose mission is “…to preserve, document, and present Filipino American history and to support scholarly research and artistic works which reflect that rich past…” The national office and archives is housed in Seattle, operating year-round to lend expertise and support to twenty-seven chapters across the United States and is recognized as the primary informational resource on Filipino Americans for:
*primary and secondary schools, colleges, and universities
*local and national museums and historical associations
*independent authors, playwrights, and filmmakers
*teachers, students, and scholars
Since 1987, FANHS has sponsored national conferences (later ratified as a biennial event) where community folks of all ages and from all walks of life gather to share and present research, network with other Filipino Americans, and honor those who have produced ground-breaking innovative work in the field of historical research and analysis. Our 2010 conference will be held in Seattle, WA.
Past projects include the award-winning video Filipino Americans Discovering Their Past for the Future; the renowned pictorial essay Filipinos: Forgotten Asian Americans; and various regional publications and photo exhibits.
The FANHS national network, comprised of 30 chapters throughout the United States, was founded by Dr. Dorothy Laigo Cordova and Dr. Fred Cordova in 1982.
History San José (HSJ) operates three locations: History Park — a historical and cultural campus featuring 19 partner organizations who each tell their own history in their own words; the Peralta Adobe-Fallon House Historic Site — one of the oldest and most significant locales in San José; and the Collection Center — Santa Clara Valley’s collective memory.
Every day HSJ continues to collect contemporary history documenting the social and political happenings in the Valley. We preserve a collection of more than 500,000 artifacts, including a Research Library and Archive used by locals as well as a world-wide audience. We celebrate the Valley’s history by creating exhibitions featuring the collections; by engaging the community in fun hands-on family programs and events; and by offering award-winning standards-based school programs for over 20,000 students and their teachers each year.
The Chinese Historical Society of America Museum is the oldest organization in the country dedicated to the interpretation, promotion, and preservation of the social, cultural and political history and contributions of the Chinese in America.
When founded in 1963, there were fewer than 250,000 people of Chinese descent living in the US and CHSA was a lone voice for the study and dissemination of the history of this segment of the US population. Today, as the number of Chinese in the US has risen to nearly 4 million, CHSA strives to be a responsible steward of the remarkable narrative of this rapidly growing and increasingly visible community.
WHAT WE DO CHSA promotes the contributions and legacy of the Chinese in America through its exhibitions, publications, and educational and public programs in the Museum and Learning Center. We are housed in the landmark Julia Morgan-designed Chinatown YWCA building at 965 Clay Street, San Francisco.
We offer tours of the Museum and the surrounding Chinatown community for a nominal charge. We have extended our reach with online content with online exhibits through our main portal chsa.org, sharing information and news through our Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr, and sharing photographs through our Instagram. We have also opened our doors to collaborations with others who want to share their stories and experiences through film screenings, book readings, presentations, workshops, panel discussions and so much more.
