Malta Historical Society

When the Malta Historical Society was founded in April 1950, the founder members approved its first statute, which stated among its aims, that

... "The aim of the Society shall be the study of the History of the Maltese Islands, and the diffusion of its knowledge" and that "The Society shall undertake the publication of research work on Maltese History."

Throughout its sixty years of existence, the Society's statute has been amended a number of times but these main aims of the MHS have remained enshrined within it because they are the principal reasons for its foundation.
