A Collection Made by Donors & Lenders - Thank You

A Collection Made by Donors & Lenders - Thank You

A complete list of those who have donated or loaned to the Archive Collection is below


It has been just over three years since World of Speed opened its doors to the public. And since then, we have been supported by individuals and organizations who have generously given images and artifacts to the Museum’s Archive Collection. Some donations and loans have been included in exhibits, others displayed during Open Archive Days. All has been preserved and cared for to make them available now and for generations to come. We have scanned hundreds of donated and loaned photos to share online and Collection Highlights are continuously being added to the Archive Blog to bring to life the stories they encase. Other donations have been integrated into youth programs, special showcases and offsite displays. The World of Speed Archive is continuously finding ways to share the materials donors and lenders have so generously brought into the World of Speed Collection.

Each donor and lender has brought their stories, memories, and memorials to times in their lives; maybe it’s the scribbles and notes written down while feverishly preparing for a race. Or that one memento from being in the stands for that once in a lifetime moment. It could be a scrapbook of photos covering decades of racing up and down the Pacific Northwest. Or a token of a racer long admired. Maybe a model of a race car one could only dream of driving. Each is a unique piece of the puzzle. They have come in the form of helmets, programs, posters, workbooks, trophies, films, blueprints, models, and so much more. And in so doing, have given voice to the many who have and continue to contribute to the history and culture of motorsports.

Over 95 percent of the Collection has come from over 300 donors and lenders in the past three years (many donating more than once); that's roughly two new donors per week. As we continue to preserve the history, technology and culture of motorsports to celebrate and educate for generations to come, we want to say thank you to the individuals and organizations that have contributed to the World of Speed Collection. 

The World of Speed Archive strives to build a strong collection that represents the experiences of Northwest motorsports and the impact of motorsports on American culture. But we can only do this with your community support because it is your stories and collective history and experiences that keep motorsports alive and accessible today and for tomorrow. If you are interested in donating to the World of Speed Collection, or towards the preservation and stewardship efforts being undertaking by World of Speed, stop by the Archive Room or contact katrina@worldofspeed.org.

Thank you!
