The Basenji Archives

The Basenji was a privately published magazine about the breed.  It started with a July 1964 issue by Minnie K Hill (Editor) and Francis L Hill (Manager).  The magazine ownership was transferred a few times over the years.  Past Editors Susan Coe and Lisa Auerbach have agreed to the BCOA putting many of the issues online as PDFs.  The scanning and preparation for uploading will be done over time starting with the oldest issues.

The issues are listed by year.  Click on the year below to reach the links to the The Basenji from that year.
