Looking to Our 50th Anniversary – A Book to Tell Our Story
by Jean Nilsson

Collection of archived OWA newsletters and Fifth Anniversary fold-up cube

Our history is an important story to tell and to record in book format, not only to celebrate the organization’s 50-year history in 2023, but as a contribution to social history, women’s history, and organizational history.

Hundred of newsletters – published continuously from 1973 – records of initiatives, meetings, retreats, mock exams, posters, and celebrations marking the 5th Anniversary, then the 10th, 20th, 30th and 40th anniversaries, together provide a rich picture of the organization. Looking to the 50th anniversary, we have renewed work on a digital newsletter archive and begun to explore and define the scope of a book project.

We now have a History Forum on our website available as a place for members to post and share information and ideas related to the group’s history or the 50th Anniversary book project. Use this link to let us know if you have materials, suggestions, or a piece of history you’d like to share:

Happily, this first 2017 newsletter is issued in both online and print editions, and anyone reading it who prefers to contact us by mail can do so at: Organization of Women Architects and Design Professionals, PO Box 10078, Berkeley, CA 94709. We look forward to hearing from you.
