Pit Talk Digital Archives – 8 Decades of NER Records

Cataloging Our History In 2016, Donna Stevens answered the call to organize over 70 years of New England Region SCCA history. Starting in the 1960's, Ted Goddard served as the Region Archivist. But when he passed away, all the materials he collected were left without a comprehensive catalog or way to locate specific items or materials. Donna stepped up to take on this Herculean task and has been hard at work on creating a cohesive inventory and organizational system. Every year at our Annual Meeting, Donna gives the region an update on her progress. To date: Over 3,000 documents have been recorded, preserved, and filed in 50 storage boxes for BOD Administration, Rally, Solo and Racing by date. There are 16 cabinet drawers with a treasured collection of Regional Awards, photos, GCRs and rule book specifications dating back to 1962. We also have regional charters, 520 Pit Talks from 1953 through the 2020 yearbook, trophies, posters, banners and the original NER Bylaws and Articles of Organization and Incorporation. Pit Talk Digitized As part of the archival process, Donna partnered up with Denise Patten on scanning and creating digital copies of all the Pit Talk magazines through the decades. [...]
