Happy Holidays from the Latrobe Chapter

President’s Letter and Membership Renewal

Dear Latrobe Chapter Members:

On behalf of the Board of the Latrobe Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians, I would like to thank all of our members for their continued support and interest in our programs. This past year the Chapter offered an incredible line up of lectures and tours, and I hope you will renew your membership for next year.   

Here’s a sneak peek of our 2019 lecture and tour series:

  • ·March – Behind the scenes tour of Riversdale Historic House Museum, Riverdale Park, MD

  • April – San Diego TIKI: Creating a Post-War Tropical Paradise lecture by Diane Kane

  • MayBuilding Washington: An Engineering and Construction History of Washington, D.C.: 1790-1840 lecture and book signing by Robert Kapsch

  • June – Tour and luncheon at Virginia’s historic Stratford Hall

Your membership is vital to continuing our programming. We will again be offering members the opportunity to pay a discounted price in advance for the full series of five lectures. (Tours are reserved separately and priced individually.)

Please use the attached 2019 membership renewal form or go to our new Latrobe Chapter website. The web address is the same (www.latrobechaptersah.org) but with an improved design and the ability to renew your membership online through PayPal (coming soon!). As you select your membership type, please keep in mind the Email Only option is the easiest way to stay in touch and it’s a great savings to you and the Chapter!

I look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
