Past PA Memos

One can say that the internet has killed the newsletter. For years Preservation Alumni produced the PA Memo, a document rich with updates from the Historic Preservation program, PA happenings and initiatives, features about the work of fellow alumni, and thoughts on the preservation movement in general. Naturally, as avid readers of history, we get a kick from re-visiting these "historical documents," and think our members might too. Unfortunately, our archive contains only a small selection of them, mostly from the recent past. We are currently working to track down more for our digital collection.
