Links: The Bristol Historical Association: Local History Pamphlets

From 1960-2007, the Bristol Branch of the Historical Association issued a series of 120 pamphlets aimed at making Bristolís history available to a wider audience.For most of the period the branch was managed and funded by the Department of History, University of Bristol. In its later years it was led by the Centre for Regional History, University of the West of England. Many of the contributors were academics or local scholars. Every pamphlet was subject to peer review by members of the Bristol branch.

With the dissolution of the Bristol branch of the Historical Association in c.2007, the pamphlets ceased to be issued. Many are now difficult to get hold of. Given that they contain a huge amount of valuable research, the Bristol Record Society, which had close connections with the Bristol branch of the HA, is seeking to raise awareness of, and access to, these publications. It is doing this first by publishing a full electronic list of the publications, since none currently exists online. Where possible, we will make digitized copies of the pamphlets available free of charge.

In all cases the copyright of the pamphlets remains with the original authors, or their heirs - albeit no fees or royalties were ever paid to the authors. The BRS is seeking to contact copyright owners of these pampthlets. If you own copyright to any of these items and wish to confirm your willingess for us to publish a digitized version of it, please email Dr Evan Jones, who is the Digitization Officer and Webmaster for the Bristol Record Society. Conversely, if you are the copyright owner of a pamphtlet and wish to indicate that you do not wish us to distribute a digitized version of it, please let us know. Finally, if you wish to publish your pamphlet elsewhere, in digital or physical form, please let us know that too, so we can provide a link to it.
