Business history preserves the material culture of corporations and tells the story of American business history as well as community history. This AASLH community is designed for professionals within corporations or corporate museums who collect and interpret history or use history to market corporations, and provides a forum for networking and professional development.

The Business History Affinity Community is tailor-made to facilitate networking among professionals who run corporate history programs.

Through affinity luncheons, sessions at the Annual Meeting, tours of museums and archives that contain business history collections, the Business History Affinity Group works to articulate the value of business history, address public perceptions about funding, and provide a forum for networking and professional development.

Professionals affiliated with the business history community:

  • use a business’ past to talk about its future, or the role the company has played in community development;
  • interpret business and corporate history to further the public’s understanding of science, technology and/or the company’s field;
  • work in a corporate or business museum, archive or visitor center;
  • help a corporation decide whether or not to invest in a business history program;
  • work for a history institution that is owned and/or managed by a business.
