Our proud claim of being more than an professional association for scholars lies largely in the heritage of its branches. They are the true nexus between the Ivory Tower and the community. With the formation of branches in the late 1920's, ASALH became bigger than its founder, as the branches increasingly reshaped ASALH's program.
The history of ASALH cannot be told without a focus on branch history. Please return to this page in the future and check on our progress as we prepare for the public a history of the ASALH branches.
