A membership in the Swedish–American Historical Society means that you can get to learn about the immigration experience through the experiences of Swedish–Americans. When you become a member of the Society, you join the ranks of loyal and dedicated members that help us fulfill our mission of studying the Swedish emigration and the history and culture of the Swedes in North America, through research, publications, programs, and archives.
One of the most valued benefits of membership in the Swedish–American Historical Society is receiving the Quarterly. The Swedish–American Historical Quarterly is an academic journal published continuously since 1950 by the Swedish–American Historical Society. The title of the journal was the Swedish Pioneer Historical Quarterly from 1950 to 1983. Full of historic illustrations and substantial articles by researchers, noted authors, and leading academics, the Swedish–American Historical Quarterly documents and interprets the Swedish-American presence in North America.
The Quarterly is published four times a year, in January, April, July, and October.
