The Summer 2017 issue of The Watermark is available online. It contains reports and minutes from the recent ALHHS/MeMA annual meeting in Nashville, Tennessee on 3-4 May 2017. In her "From the President" message, Rachel Ingold writes, "For our new and newish ALHHS members: I urge you to consider volunteering for a committee. This is a great way to learn more about the organization as well as meet others. And if you are a veteran ALHHS member and it has been a while since you’ve served on a committee, please let me or any of the other officers know about your interest."
Mark your calendars: the 2018 ALHHS/MeMA annual meeting will be held at UCLA and Los Angeles environs on May 9 and 10, 2018.
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!?
