Partnering with History Associates, Incorporated was the single most important decision we made as we took on the task of documenting our company history. Their experience in conducting research and oral histories, and finding a powerful storyline was invaluable. The authors and support staff were highly professional, and a true pleasure to work with. The final product from HAI exceeded even our high expectations.

The writing flows with an authenticity that resonates.

Speaking about A company With a Mission: Rodman Rockefeller and the International Basic Economy Corporation, 1947-1985
Intelligent, informative, and honest to a fault.

Speaking about the DuPont history book, From the Banks of the Brandywine to the Miracles of Science
With History Associates’ help we were able to meet our production deadlines and produce a company history that is a well-written and beautifully crafted memento of a corporate milestone we are proud to share with employees, customers, and shareholders.
Daniel Ritz, Director of Investor Relations

The interviews are an unparalleled body of information.
Carla Rosati, Executive Director

regarding History Associates’ oral history work for the SEC’s Women Commissioners Project.
We are very happy with the work History Associates did for our 40th History Book. They worked closely with us to stay within our budget and timeframe for the project — and the quality of the work they did was excellent.
James Crouch, Executive Eirector
California Rural Indian Health Board (CRIHB)
From start to finish, Adrian and the others involved have simply been a pleasure to work with. We are proud of the job you and your organization did on this meaningful project, and look forward to sharing the superb result.

I want to thank all of you at History Associates – and I know my partners join me in this – for producing a beautiful, readable and informed book about Hogan & Hartson. It was very professionally done, and it helped make our 100th year celebration particularly satisfying.

National World War I Museum Interactive Exhibit review
HOW, Interactive Design Award
The interpretation at Third Winchester is a huge success story. Visitation among tourists and local residents is higher than we ever expected.
Jim Campi, Director of Communications
Civil War Trust
Of all the sites I’ve visited in the last two years, the best interpreted in my opinion is the CWPT’s Third Winchester Battlefield. Great maps. Great illustration. And most of all, a text summary of the events that prompts the visitor to walk the fields and see for themselves.
Craig Swain, on-line reviewer of historical markers
The cemetery has always had this extremely powerful emotional component. What was lacking was a story to go with the names written on the headstones.
American Battle Monuments Commission
The historical research is solid and easy to read and reread at you leisure. Great videos, images, and design. The app combines history, technology, and the user experience beautifully.
Customer review of the Gettysburg Battle App
Along with the Gettysburg Battlefield app the Fredericksburg Battle app represents ground-breaking integration of history with GPS and iPhone technology to change the way we understand these battles.
Customer review of the Fredericksburg Battle App
I live in Fredericksburg, and am always quick to criticize when I find anything about the Battle of Fredericksburg that I think is incorrect. This app is outstanding. I plan to purchase Gettysburg now, and the others as soon as they are released.
Customer review of the Fredericksburg Battle App
I have worked with HAI on at least three matters and they are outstanding. They have literally saved us millions of dollars based on their historical archival work.
Gerry Caron, Counsel
History Associates Inc. has been meticulous in its investigation, going well beyond the original scope of the research. Twelve research historians spent more than 3,500 hours to contact or visit over 75 research archives and examine individual property records at 39 Louisiana parishes.
Regarding History Associates’ work on slavery disclosure investigation
We would have had a much more difficult, if not impossible, time proving our case, but for the documents and information provided to us by the experienced folks at History Associates.
Linda Tape, Attorney

Thank you so much for your presentation on Civil War research – our guests learned so much about the incomparable Civil War holdings of the National Archives. In addition, your case studies of actual research projects really helped them understand the power of using original records to answer historical questions. I heard several enthusiastic and positive comments from our visitors about your talk, including from the tour guide.
Stefanie R. Mathew, Director of Development
Foundation for the National Archives
Regarding Jamie Rife’s presentation “Civil War Research at NARA,” September 2011
My research into the origins of Arizona’s modern securities act wasn’t coming up with anything, so I turned to History Associates for help. As historians, they knew the background of the industry and the key players involved right away. They got right to the bottom of the issue and identified potential sources for information, regularly updating me on their progress. They found material in the archives I never would have found, including correspondence from 1949 that showed the thinking processes behind the legislation. I would not have gotten there without their help.
Richard G. Himelrick, Attorney at Law
Tiffany & Bosco P.A.
I am very impressed with the professionalism and competence of History Associates Archivists. They yield predictably excellent outcomes.
Shaun J. Hardy, Librarian

The donation of this collection with the help of HAI to the Huntington Library insures that the collection is well taken care of and is made available to historic scholars.
Thomas Taylor, Manager of Biological and Archaeological Resources
Southern California Edison
Should we need the services of History Associates again, I will not hesitate to contact you. I appreciate very much the way your firm handled the initial inventory of Senator Byrd’s office. That was a huge help to us and we are still benefiting from it.
Ray Smock, Director

From the beginning, we were impressed with History Associates and how professional they were in dealing with our office. Everyone was wonderful and I recommended them to other offices as well.

HAI was recommended to me by University of MD, which houses our union archives. Best recommendation I ever received. Everyone’s needs are somewhat ‘custom’; we’re all a little different in the projects we are trying to grow. HAI met EVERY need that I had; many of those were needs that I was unaware of until our relationship began. I would recommend HAI 100%.
