The SEAHO Archives exist to make meaning of the history of an organization intent on serving its initial purpose: creating networking, support, and professional development opportunities for those engaged in the housing profession. Currently housed at Clemson University, the SEAHO Archives serve as a repository of contributed items with the primary intent of preserving historical record to inform current membership and assist in creating tangible links to our history for future generations of housing professionals. Digital copies of working documents are also maintained by the SEAHO Archives when made available to assist SEAHO leadership with maintenance and transition of documents.
