In late 1969 two ladies in Santa Monica, California formed the National Heisey Collectors Club. They issued their first newsletter in September, 1969 and called it "The Heisey Glass Newsletter." By June of 1971, due to financial problems, this Club ceased to exist. At that time there were over 350 members.

By the end of 1971, former members had been contacted by a local Newark area group of Heisey collectors to find out if there was enough interest to found a national organization in Newark, Ohio, home of the original A.H. Heisey Company. This group eventually organized and founded the Heisey Collectors of America and "the rest is history." Heisey Collectors of America is still going strong 30 years later.

In October, 1973 a small group of eight people in Southern California met again to organize a study club and by June, 1974 they became Charter Club #13 to the Heisey Collectors of America.

Our Club has sponsored two successful National Quarterly Meetings. We also have two fundraisers during the year, one in April and one at our December Christmas meeting. These are fun, social events with our members generously donating Heiseyglass and the proceeds are presented to HCA at the annual Heisey Glass Convention in June of each year. In addition, we are also proud that we have had four of our members elected to serve on the Board of Directors of HCA.
