News (10 April 2017)

  • The Spring 2017 issue of The Watermark is available online. It contains many details, including the Program, about the upcoming ALHHS/MeMA annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee (aka "Music City USA") on 3-4 May 2017. In his Editor's Message, Steve Novak writes, "While this issue of The Watermark is a little thinner than normal, there’s still plenty of good reading. Besides seven book reviews (ALHHS members are readers!), there’s a profile of the Rochester (N.Y) Medical Museum and Archives, two member profiles, and plenty of news of members and their collections." At 48 pages, this is a thin issue!?
