Automotive Research Library
Shining A Light On Automotive History
The Automotive Research Library of the Horseless Carriage Foundation was established in 1985 with the primary purpose of recreating the pioneer automotive research libraries of W. Everett Miller and Dr. Alfred S. Lewerenz.
Our goal was, and still is, to make automotive research and restoration information readily available to hobbyists, restorers, and scholars worldwide.
The HCFI Library encourages and supports co-operation between automotive libraries in this country and overseas. Our funding comes from individual donations and grants from various charitable organizations including the Ellen Browning Scripps Foundation. Additional income from user fees helps to support Library services.
