Our Society is now almost forty years old, certainly old enough to attract the attention of researchers interested in its development and in the development of sports history more generally.

BSSH stalwart Malcolm MacLean, chair from 2007 to 2010, has donated a collection of documents relating to his work with the Society and these have now been deposited at the Archives and Special Collections Department at the Kimberlin Library, De Montfort University, Leicester, who have kindly agreed to help us develop a BSSH archive.

We are now looking to build on this solid foundation, a process kindly being facilitated by Dil Porter (dilporter@btinternet.com). He would welcome contact from any members who may be able to contribute to the archive.
