A Selected List of Libraries and Archives for Automotive History

Hi folks -- this list was compiled by Arthur Jones for the Society of Automotive Historians(SAH) about 4 years ago. The list is incomplete and some personnel have changed, but hopefully in the near future a more comprehensive list will be produced that includes such sites at the Revs Institute in Naples, Florida.  This does provide the would-be scholar with a start, albeit imperfect. Thanks to Arthur.  If you are interested in auto history, please consider joining the SAH.  The organization's website is easy to find via search engine.
