SSHSA was established in 1935 as a means of bringing together amateur and professional historians interested in the history and development of steam navigation, past and present. Today, our members include maritime collectors and artists, current and former crew members, historians and students, genealogists, scuba divers, cruise travelers, ship engineers and architects, and maritime history enthusiasts.

Today, with extensive collections of maritime photos, periodicals, artwork, official records, memorabilia and ephemera, SSHSA is the oldest and largest organization of its kind in the world.
