Over the past few years, Pennsylvania History: A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies has really blossomed under the skilled and passionate leadership of editor Linda Ries.  In addition to a fabulous Winter issue, the most recent special issue on the Juniata Valley drew needed attention to an often overlooked part of the state.  This spring the PHA Council and Executive Committee also reaffirmed our partnership with Penn State University Press to publish the journal and we look forward to many more years as the state’s flagship journal (with all due respect to our good friends at PMHB) for original, high-quality scholarship.
