The Museum of Hidden History is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Its overarching mission is to educate the public about little-known aspects of American history, alternative perspectives on history, and actively hidden and newly-emerging history. Our central project is the Hidden History Center, a library and research facility located in York, Pennsylvania, entirely staffed by volunteers. We are striving to create a dynamic information hub. Our target population includes students of history, economics, and social and political science in Central Pennsylvania, and worldwide audience through our website. The Center is based on the collection of the late John Judge, an internationally-acclaimed researcher, writer and speaker, as well as a lifelong anti-militarist and alternate historian. His collection includes over 700 boxes of books and papers on subjects such as political assassinations, covert government activities, the military-industrial complex, peace activism and civil liberties.
Our programs at the Hidden History Center include:
- Internships: We are extending our internship program to enrich the educational experiences of students near York, Pennsylvania. Students can obtain college course credits as they work on-site at the Center, organizing and cataloging the documents in our collection.
- Website Development: We are continually upgrading and expanding our website. More articles on little-known history subjects are constantly being added.
- Collections Management: We plan to hire a firm to inventory our books. We are itemizing the documents in our collection, and we plan to purchase collections management software soon.
- Outreach: We are developing an e-mail newsletter offering insights into hidden history topics; we plan to arrange a seminar or panel discussion for students at York College; we offer email and "snail mail" updates on our activities; and we continue to develop our social media platforms.
