Announcing the Presidents Blog
Whitey Morange, PHSNE's President, has established a blog for items of PHSNE interest. In Whitey's words: "I will be posting things in a different way here; less formal, more newsy and personal. I hope it’s useful to someone but, if not, at least it keeps me off the streets, right?"

The blog supports comments by readers, so come and join in the discussion of photo history!
