Welcome to the Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust

The late Michael C Sedgwick, whose life and work the Trust was set up in 1983 to commemorate, was one of the world’s greatest automotive historians. Following his death his friends established this Trust with the specific purpose of encouraging authors and publishers to put historical works on motoring into print.

The Trust’s Objectives:

“A Trust fund to encourage new research into motoring history and to make the findings available to the public”.

The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust is a not-for-profit charitable trust, registration number 290841.



The Michael Sedgwick Memorial Trust organised a highly successful conference 'HOW TO PUBLISH MOTORING HISTORY' at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, Warwickshire CV35 0BJ, on Saturday 11 March 2017. The M.S.M.T. are hoping to repeat the success in 2018, and look forward to any suggestions for a conference topic from our supporters.
