Our Members

The CTDA is made up of more than 90 organizations and individuals who believe that everyone has a place in our collective history

The Collections

Each item in the CTDA is owned, selected, managed, and made available through the CTDA by the members themselves. This bottom up approach means that the CTDA reflects the interests and ideas of its diverse membership

CTDA Connect: Stories from the Repository

CTDA Connect brings you stories written using primary sources from the CTDA. These stories highlight people, places and events in Connecticut and beyond that are represented in the collections of CTDA members. These stories are researched and written by undergraduate interns in the UConn History program. We hope you enjoy these stories and are interested enough to check out the primary documents they are based on.
