About American Truck Historical Society
Incorporated in 1971, the American Truck Historical Society was formed to preserve the history of trucks, the trucking industry, and its pioneers. Just over a year later another fledgling group, the United States Truck Historical Society, was included to form the “new” ATHS. Shortly afterward the American Trucking Association officially recognized ATHS as the “duly authorized organization founded to record and develop trucking industry historical data.” The Zoe James Memorial Library boasts a collection of over 40,000 photographs; 35,000 pieces of sales literature; 45,000 books and periodicals, along with a collection of scale model trucks.
