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 this material is located. It is all available to the automotive researcher, writer, educator, student, and enthusiast - FREE!

The Library is named after Eric White, former Society President and one of the founders of the Society his untimely passing was a tragedy that will always be remembered by our staff. His picture appears at left. We honor him, 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".
