What’s Happening In Kansas City
The SPAAMFAA Board of Directors and Archives Committee was notified by the Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) to remove our material from Hershey PA and a decision was made to enter into as agreement and share space with the Antique Truck Historical Society (ATHS) based in Kansas City, MO.
SPAAMFAA Archivist, Ed Peterson began packing and recording immediately, and with a team of volunteers working under David Napier everything was boxed and loaded into a moving van on November 19, 2015. The truck then headed for Tom Scott’s house in Tennessee to pick a large collection of books from his library. Those cartons were filled and loaded by local fire fighters. Once the truck arrived at Kansas City, another team, also working under Past-President David Napier, unloaded the truck into a space while still another team delivered, unloaded, and assembled shelving and storage cabinets.
As of January 2016, all of the SPAAMFAA materials are now shelved and can be easily found. The next goal (2017) will be to begin detailing the contents of each box and file so that members will be able to search on line. How fast we can get how much material on line will be determined by the Society’s fund raising efforts to hire a staff member.
The library will continue to accept gifts of archival, two-dimensional, materials and the committee asks that you contact us to discuss such photographs or specifications that you have in mind.
Unfortunately the SPAAMFAA Archives is not prepared to handle any specific research inquiries at this time.
