Variant Name
Historical Note
The Williamsburg Historic Records Association (WHRA) is an organization dedicated to collecting and preserving records of post-colonial Williamsburg, James City County, and York County. It gives all its material to the Special Collections Research Center of the College of William and Mary's Swem Library. WHRA has gathered thousands of diversified documents, ranging from a single photo to large collections of personal papers and organizational records. Especially important are 19th and 20th-century letters, diaries, wills, deeds, photographs, books, maps, newspaper clippings, scrap books, pamphlets, medical records, programs of events, church and school records, membership lists of local organizations, phone books and school year books. An annual meeting is held each Spring to discuss acquisitions and to hear a speaker on local history. Donated ephemera and more generally printed materials are accessible through this WHRA Ephemera Collection. Other records and papers are described in separate catalog records with WHRA as added author. Furthermore, all WHRA records will have at least one subject heading 'Williamsburg (Va.)--History--[century] to facilitate access.
