The Western History Association strives to be a congenial home for the study and teaching of all aspects of North American Wests, frontiers, homelands, and borderlands. Our mission is to cultivate the broadest appreciation of this diverse history.

The WHA offers membership in an organization of historians focused on the study of the American West. In addition to the natural camaraderie of pursing Western history, the WHA offers these benefits to members:

  • A one year subscription to the Western Historical Quarterly, the premier scholarly journal in the field, with articles and book reviews by leading western historians.
  • The chance to attend the Annual WHA Conference Program, featuring tours to historic sites and distinguished speakers.
  • Eligibility for awards and prizes in recognition of scholarly achievements in Western History.
