Dates of existence


The Canadian Catholic Historical Association, a national organization of Catholic historians and others interested in the preservation and study of Catholic Church history in Canada was founded as an offspring of the American Catholic Historical Association in 1933 by a committee made up of James Francis Kenney, Chief Justice F.R. Latchford and the Rev. J.B. O'Reilly. At first it was envisaged as an association which would include both French and English sections within one organization. The CCHA membership meets once a year with the Learned Societies, publishes a refereed journal CCHA Historical Studies, which includes a "Current Bibliography of Canadian Church History," and publishes the CCHA Bulletin semi-annually.
