Stay connected with the stories of your state. Bring your own beverage and join us for a series of insightful conversations with some of Indiana’s most interesting scholars.

The Hoosier Motorist Collection

May is often thought of as the month of racing in Indiana, so what better way to celebrate the upcoming race than by looking back at some highlights from the Indiana Historical Society collection with Susan Sutton, our Director of Access and Preservation. Learn about Robert Hamilton Scrogin, an official of the Hoosier Motor Club and editor of The Hoosier Motorist magazine. We will look at select items from our collection and discuss what early road trip adventures throughout the state looked like.

Free Program. Additional opportunities are available to support IHS as we continue collecting, preserving, and sharing Indiana’s history.

Registration closes 2 hours prior to the start of the program.


Frequently Asked Questions:

How long does it last?

History Happy Hours are informal conversations with IHS staff and scholars that usually last around 60-minutes.

Do I need to be camera ready?

Nope. We will use the Zoom webinar platform, so you can join us from your kitchen table, couch, or the porch. Just make sure you’re ready to type, as we will make sure there is plenty of time for your questions through the chat feature.

What do I need to participate? 

History Happy Hour takes place virtually over Zoom. You can either join through an internet-connected device or calling-in via phone. We will send you a link and phone number through the email you used to register around two hours before the program begins. Don’t see the email? Make sure to check your spam or junk folder.

Do you have other History Happy Hours that I can watch?

We sure do! Check out all our past programs here. (Scroll down to the History Happy Hour menu to see the recordings.)
