50 Years: Read and Share Your Memories

February 5, 2013

You’ve likely already noticed that the ICS February 50thanniversary issue is now live and posted here on the website. But we wanted to make sure that you saw a special 50thanniversary webpage that we’ve also created for all anniversary content over at ICSmag.com/50.

Consider it your fast track to seeing everything that’s specific to this publication’s 50 years. To compliment the retrospective content you can read in the print magazine, you’ll find some great content that we’ve held just for the web, such as Ruth Travis’ piece, “The Unsung Women Heroes of the Past 50 Years,” and Patricia Harman’s detailed history of the Restoration Industry Association (RIA). Additionally, you’ll be able to read reflections and memories from all 35 industry professionals who were kind enough to share their thoughts with us.

We’d also like to invite you to share your thoughts and industry memories with us by scrolling down and posting in the comments section of any story on the ICS 50thpage.

You must login or register in order to post a comment.
