Got a letter in my email box that I’d like to share with you. The Historical Society of Washington operates the archive/library that I find useful in doing neighborhood research so that’s why it is slightly applicable to InShaw. Also they hold some photographs of neighborhood streets, not just the ritzy addresses, but mine. If you are interested in researching your house or your street, I suggest paying them a visit.
BREAKING NEWS: As many of you read in today’s Washington Post, the City Council yesterday voted to wipe out $500,000 in funding promised to HSW in the coming fiscal year. Council members say they do not understand what it is we do here at HSW and why it matters so much.
We hope you can help us by telling D.C. Council why HSW matters to you.
ACTION: Please call or write or email the members who represent you – from your ward AND the at-large members elected citywide – and tell them why HSW matters to you. Council contact information is listed below. If you are willing to share your communications with us, please copy us at email@example.com or fax 202.383.1870.
If you have questions or comments for us, please contact me. My direct line is 202.383.1810, and email clement at historydc.org.
D.C. history matters. We need to say this to our Council – we need your help.
