Because of the Coronavirus pandemic, no events are currently planned. However, Michael Kihntopf is hoping to organize a meeting in the not-too-distant future.
A Message from the WW1HA President:
14 March 2022
On Saturday March 12 the WW1HA hosted its first ever online quiz night. This was a fun way to get geographically distant members together virtually. We are considering doing this a few times a year.
The next issue of World War One Illustrated (WWOI) will be printed shortly. Members/subscribers should receive their printed issue in the next month or so.
Members are encouraged to participate in the monthly online seminars hosted by the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter; and we plan to announce a gathering of WW1HA members at the National World War I Museum’s Fall 2022 symposium. Stay tuned!

Talk to Editor Ed Klekowski (email@example.com) or Charles Van Way (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more details.
