These search scripts use a MySQL database located on The Company server. The database contains entries for each signed article, Military Uniforms In America (MUIA) plate, book review and letter to the editor in volumes 1-55. Company news items and announcements, the unsigned reviews in the Publications section, and the series of articles published under the heading "Keeping Tradition Alive" have not been included. Each article has had keywords associated with it to improve searching. Issue contents will be added as they are published.

"Now that I have the results, where can I find the journal and plates?" Finding complete runs of Military Collector & Historian to use for research can be a problem. Finding the colored plates is even harder. We provide a guide to libraries with holdings and other means of getting copies here.
