SWISS AMERICAN HISTORICAL SOCIETY

 

ABOUT US

Our Mission Statement, Goals and Publications

The Swiss American Historical Society (SAHS) was founded in Chicago in 1927. It was established to promote the study of the Swiss in America, Swiss-American relations, and Swiss immigration to the United States. The SAHS encourages American interest in Swiss history and culture, unites those involved in genealogical research, and serves as a link between Swiss Americans, Swiss, and Americans in fostering cultural awareness and mutual understanding. Chapters of the Society exist in Switzerland and North America.

The Society publishes the Swiss-American Historical Society Review three times a year,

along with a number of other book publications. 

Each calendar year, the Swiss American Historical Society will award a Leo Schelbert Prize to the best Swiss or Swiss-American history paper in one of two levels –Undergraduate and Graduate.

The latest SAHS information bulletin is available on this PDF.
