Who We Are

The Institute currently has about a hundred members, primarily in the San Francisco Bay Area. Many are independent scholars. Some are current or retired university faculty members. We are a group that enjoys both scholarship and camaraderie, and we are actively seeking new members.


About Us

The Institute for Historical Study is a community of researchers, writers, and artists. Our common bond is a devotion to history in its many forms. Through wide-ranging programs, we share research, ideas, and practical advice and provide a public forum for the discussion of history.
