The Norwegian-American Historical Association was founded in 1925 to commemorate the centennial of Norwegian immigration to North America. Now, nearly a century later, NAHA is an invaluable source for the public and for scholars of migration history worldwide. NAHA Executive Director Amy Boxrud will introduce the collections in the NAHA Archives. She will also share how the association is expanding access, stimulating research, and offering new perspectives on migration within its archives, publications, and events as it approaches its centennial in 2025.
