A Resource for Researchers and Writers:

We are actively seeking donations of pre-1961 magazines from all publishers
 If you have magazines from this period, we will be pleased to accept them. Please contact

We Need 1975-1992 Print Ad Copy:
We are actively seeking donations of 1975-1992 Print Ad copy. A scanned image at 300 dpi is sufficient, though you may send us the paper image that we will return to you if you desire.

Collections Activity

Pre-World War Two Print Advertising

During the month of March 2021, our scanning, cleaning and loading activity will be focused on the era 1921-1942.  We will spend a bulk of our time on what we call "orphaned brands", or brands that did not survive the World War Two.

NOTE: We welcome scanned (at a minimum of 150 DPI) Print Advertisements into our collection. If you have materials - scanned or in paper and would like to donate them, please contact librarian@ahpsoc.org. Thank you.

Please visit our Print Advertising Section and look over all our materials - you will be glad you did!

1900s through 1960s Orphaned Brands and Luxury Vehicles Print Ads -

We're continuing to add print ads by year and make during this month. We estimate we will load more than 300 print ads before year-end 2020.

1950s - Early 60s Road Tests -

We are scanning an entire magazine and extracting the road tests first, so as to populate, by brand, our Test area in the Technical Section. This is an ongoing project for 2020.
