A Virtual History Project: APPA's Centennial Image Bank

Dear Members and Friends of APPA:

Welcome to APPA’s Virtual History Project! To help APPA celebrate its 100th Anniversary, this web page has been designed to allow you, and your fellow colleagues, an opportunity to contribute photos, video, and other images to APPA’s Centennial Image Bank.

The Centennial Image Bank provides an opportunity for all APPA International, regional and chapter members to contribute images and content. The Image Bank will be unveiled, following its completion, at the APPA 2014 Annual Conference and Centennial Celebration, to be held July 20-23, 2014 at the Sheraton Harbor Island Hotel in San Diego, California. Here are examples of the kinds of content we are seeking (and we gladly welcome your ideas as well):

Help us tell the story of how campus design and architecture have changed over the decades.
