As mentioned in previous post, Mr. Vinson was an active member of the Society of Automotive Historians (SAH), having served as both its president and editor of its Automotive History Review. In April, SAH will be holding its Ninth Biennial Automotive History Conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
I will be speaking at the conference on Saturday April 14th about the Z. Taylor Vinson Collection. After my presentation, there will be an afternoon tour of Hagley Museum and Library. The tour will include a trip to the Library to see some of the treasures of the Vinson Collection first hand.
I wanted to take this opportunity to see if any of our readers will be attending the conference and if so, what questions do you have about the collection? Is there anything in particular that you’re dying to know? Please post any thought, questions, or comments below so that I can try to address as many of these items as possible in my presentation. I look forward to meeting many of you there! Thank you in advance for any input you can offer. For more information about the conference, visit the Society of Automotive Historian’s website.
Emily Cottle is Project Archivist/Cataloger for the Z. Taylor Vinson Collection at Hagley Museum and Library.
