Mission Statement

The mission of the American Truck Historical Society is to collect artifacts, information, photographs, and other relevant materials pertaining to the origin, development, and progress of the motor truck transportation industry; to verify and establish the authenticity and accuracy of the collected information and materials; to place or arrange for placement of all objects, gifts, artifacts, and other items on display for educational purposes that relate historically to the development of the motor truck industry; to serve as a repository for donations, gifts, and bequests.

Description

Incorporated in 1971, the American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. Just over a year later another fledgling group, the United States Truck Historical Society, was included to form the "new" ATHS. Shortly afterward the American Trucking Association officially recognized ATHS as the "duly authorized organization founded to record and develop trucking industry historical data." The Zoe James Memorial Library boasts a collection of over 100,000 photographs; 35,000 pieces of sales literature; 45,000 books and periodicals, along with a collection of scale model trucks.
