Mormon History Association
Welcome to the website of the Mormon History Association. Since 1965 we have provided an independent forum for the presentation and distribution of Mormon history prepared for those interested in all aspects of the genre. Through annual conferences, our quarterly periodical, the Journal of Mormon History (published since 1974), and our quarterly newsletter MHA News, we serve over one thousand MHA members by disseminating the most recent scholarship and information about Mormon history. Membership is open to all who are interested in joining the organization.
Please consider joining with us in the study and celebration of Mormon history.

The Wyndham San Antonio Riverwalk has excellent conference space and has promised to provide us with all that is required to make the conference a success.

MHA now offers a Digital-only membership for $25 per year. Those choosing this form of membership will receive access to the Journal of Mormon History through USU Digital Commons, and may access the MHA News newsletters. They will also receive the periodic "Updates" through emails as do all members of MHA. Digital-only members may register for the MHA conferences as members, as well. This may be an option you will want to consider.
Student Travel Fund
We have enjoyed in the past couple of years a resurgence of interest by students in MHA. Last year we established a Student Travel Fund whereby MHA members could contribute to augmenting the travel expenses of students who presented papers at the annual conference. Last year we were able to help fourteen students who participated in the Calgary conference. Supporting the Fund will help ensure a healthy future for MHA by providing opportunities for students of Mormon history who otherwise may not be able to attend with us.
