Welcome to 'The History Project' Library!

This is where, from time to time, the Editors will deposit articles of an historic nature, relevant to all matters 'feline'. The range of topics could be broad, covering such things as feline health, the history of a specific breed or even a specific color or pattern within a breed.

Histories relevant to a particular cat, a club, or a person within the fancy, or an item housed in either the CFA Foundation's Feline Historical Museum or The Harrison Weir Collection, will be found in the sections on CATS, CLUBS, PEOPLE or ARTIFACTS respectively. All other articles not fitting into those categories will find their way into this library!

Eventually, as material becomes available, many historical breed and color articles will be found here in an archive of PDF files. The opinions expressed in any archived material, may not necessarily be those of either the Editors, or of the CFA Foundation, or The Harrison Weir Collection. As the library grows, the Editors will reserve the right to place the articles into relevant sub-categories for easy reference or maintenance and to make the library user friendly, for searching under specific or topical headings.

We welcome a series of articles on Feline Genetics written by Dr. Leslie Lyons, Ph.D. Dr. Lyons is a Gilbreath McLorn Endowed Professor of Comparative Medicine at the Department of Veterinary Medicine & Surgery, College of Veterinary Medicine University of Missouri Columbia, Columbia, MO. Dr. Lyons is well-known in the cat fancy for her research regarding felines.

The library is open online resource, for everyone who is a cat fancier, whether you own a cat or not, whether you belong to a club or not, and regardless of your affiliation. Our aim is to educate, in a spirit of transparency and healthy debate, and to share that learning with all who are willing to participate.
