In April 2015, the board of directors of the Alaska Historical Society endorsed the History Relevance Campaign‘s statement about the value of history. The endorsement includes supporting a history value statement about why history is essential. For more details, see the History Relevance Campaign page on our website.
The History Relevance Campaign serves as a catalyst for discovering, demonstrating, and promulgating the value of history for individuals, communities, and the nation. The campaign promotes the idea that history can have more impact when it connects the people, events, places, stories, and ideas of the past with people, events, places, stories, and ideas that are important and meaningful to communities, people, and audiences today.
