EWHP is also a joint sponsor with the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church and the National Episcopal Historiographers and Archivists of the Tri-history Conferences. We have been working together since 1986 planning these tri-annual conferences. Recent tri-history conferences were in Toronto in 2001, Chicago in 2004, Williamsburg, VA in 2007 and Raleigh, NC in 2010. The meeting in Chicago was also a joint Anglican-Lutheran conference. The most recent conference was in Raleigh, From Manteo to the MDGs: Seeking Mission and Justice in the Anglican Tradition 1584-2010,

Save the date for the next tri-history conference to be held in San Antonio June 11-14, 2013. The Theme is the Episcopal Church on the Borderlands. The call for papers is now available.


EWHP continues recording, transcribing and editing the oral histories of dozens of women missionaries and lay workers.


At various times EWHP has published bibliographies, “how to” manuals, postcard series and a perpetual calendar honoring twelve women who had made history in the Episcopal Church or their communities. Our most current project is a collection of biographies of the women who have been elected bishops in the Episcopal Church.

A growing archive is maintained in the national Episcopal Church Archives in Austin Texas.
