Mission Statement and Purpose:

To preserve and make available research materials to all.

Over the many years that people have been collecting Carnival Glass, research has been performed, written and published in club newsletters; catalogs have been discovered; and several books on various topics have been published. Because much of this data exists only in paper form, it is HOAGCA's goal to digitize and publish electronic formats of this research to ensure that it is not lost to future generations.

Over time, entire books and other publications will be available under "Reference Materials and Articles" below.

In addition, individual articles from various publications will be embedded in the web page of the various patterns so you can see all the research on a specific pattern in one location. Click on any highlighted word(s) for more info on that item.

This site uses Dave Doty’s site as its foundation. Existing prices will not be updated, and eventually will be removed. For information on pricing see:
