Early Communiqués Now Online!

early communique cover

We have new additions to CORSA’s online archives for CORSA members to enjoy.  Log on to see 'em.

The Board of Directors thanks Leon McLaughlin, Scott McVicker and Steven Spilatro for enabling CORSA to post all of the early Communiqué newsletters on our website.  This was a big accomplishment and a great addition to our online archives.

Published between November 1972 and August 1978, Communiqué newsletters preceded the glossy-cover Communique magazines that we’re all familiar with.  We’ve had the current series of Communique magazines on our website for several years, but we never had those early Communiqué newsletters.  But now we do.

The early "Communiqués" were a continuation of the Windmill series of newsletters that were published from March/April 1971 to October 1972.  At that point, the editor decided to change the name to "Communiqué."  And so the first "Communiqué" was published in November 1972.

Leon and Scott packaged and shipped their hardcopies to Steve who, in turn, scanned them and uploaded them to the CORSA server.  To find them, cllick HERE.

Again, thank you Leon, Scott and Steven!
