There are many locations which contain significant archival collections of 4-H history — records, artifacts and other historical memorabilia. They include 4-H history museums and websites, and collections housed at national repositories, state and university libraries and even some local archives. There are 4-H program and event records and photos and the personal papers of some of our 4-H pioneers and leaders.
One of the projects of the National 4-H History Preservation Program is that of developing a database which provides information on where to locate these various repositories.
We currently have over 50 repositories listed in the National 4-H Repositories section of our history website… but, we know there are many more “out there.”
Visit: http://4-HHistoryPreservation.com/Repros_National.asp to view the listing and contents, or check out the locator map. If your state 4-H records and archives are not listed, or a state 4-H museum, please let us know. If you know of special collections or papers of 4-H pioneers or state 4-H leaders that are housed in a library or archive, we would like to know this, too.
