The Archives of the ADA

The Archives is the institutional memory of the American Dermatological Association (ADA). The mission of the Archives is to serve the membership by identifying, preserving, organizing, and making accessible the historical, administrative, and legal records of enduring value of the Association. The Archives are available to members and researchers on request and by appointment.

The goals of the Archives are:

  • To document past and ongoing activities of the American Dermatological Association and its members;
  • To develop pride in membership by exhibiting and offering access to the historical records of the Association.
  • The ADA Archives have been made possible, in part, through donations of photos and documents by members of the ADA. This past year, records of the Archives were on display at the ADA Annual Meeting at the Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego, CA.
  • The American Dermatological Association Archives, housed at the ADA headquarters, is open to members and other researchers by request. All researchers must follow specific procedures ensuring preservation of records, in order to retain use privileges. The Archives will be open for research by appointment.
