The Eric White Digital Documents Library


Eric White

The primary mission of the Automotive History Preservation Society is to ensure the collection and preservation of automotive historical documentation in digital format.

The Library is where much of the material is located. This material is available to the automotive researcher, writer, educator, student, and the enthusiast.

The Library has been named after Eric White, former Society President and one of the founders of the Society. His picture appears at left. Eric passed away suddenly in 2016 and we wanted to honor him because of his contributions and dedication to our cause. More information on Eric can be found HERE.

Like any library, we have catagorized material - in our case by automotive brand (Chevrolet, Ford, etc.) and/or topic. Please click on the pictures to get the flavor of what we have. Most category pages have a search function in the upper left corner if you want to "drill down".
