Archive of American Jews in Sports

In 1999, the AJHS created the Archive of American Jews in Sports to promote scholarly and public interest in the role that Jews have played in American sports, and sports has played in the Americanization of the Jewish people. Its goal is to encourage serious consideration of sports as an aspect of American Jewish history. The Archive collects memorabilia, papers, publications and other materials that permit research into the subject of American Jews and sports. Some of the Archive’s holdings include:
