As for many non-profit organizations, the Telecommunications History Group's volunteers are its life's blood, keeping the group functioning and the museums and archives in good order. Volunteers are essential to the building and maintenance of our collections, performing a variety of jobs, including archival and curator functions.
Duties can include research, preservation activities, inventory, database entry and management, equipment repair, tour conducting, educational speaking and oral history collection. Most of the work is performed at our Denver and Seattle locations, but a limited number of positions are available for long distance "tele-volunteering." We are especially interested in talking to people with database management, telephone equipment/networks and organizational skills, but the primary requirement is an interest in history.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Denver group, contact Renee Lang at firstname.lastname@example.org
, or at 303-296-1221. In Seattle contact David Dintenfass at email@example.com

Welcome to The Telecommunications History Group
(THG), where you can pursue scholarly or personal research, view museum exhibits or tour a historical telephone company building. THG collects, preserves, and interprets the unfolding history of telecommunications industry. We have facilities in Denver, Colorado and in Seattle, Washington.
THG is a non-profit organization funded by membership dues, research fees and grants. We maintain and operate one of the nation's largest privately held telecommunications archives, operate two museums and conduct educational programs on telephone history.
Our website is designed to provide online visitors with information about The Telecommunications History Group's collections, its programs and its services. We hope the website will encourage you to visit one of our facilities, but it is designed to allow those at a distance to discover and enjoy our collections, as well. Be sure to visit our Virtual Museum
to learn more about the history of the industry.
Our website and our online resources are constantly expanding, and we welcome your comments on the types of information that you need to pursue your research, discover information about upcoming programs, or use our facilities.
Want to see inside our archives? Take a virtual tour
of our facilities in Denver.
