100 Years of PSMLA; 3-Year Membership Deal

Created on Wednesday, 07 Aug 2019 12:41:46

Celebrating 100 years of PSMLA!

At the 1927 PSMLA meeting, “Mr. William Hurwitz, of Philadelphia, offered the following answer to the question ‘Where is the value of organizing teachers of foreign languages?’: 

To protect ourselves against the great onslaught of materialism from all sides; to combat wrong conceptions of education; to hold our own in order to teach our pupils to see the value of, and to love the foreigner in our country; and so to combat racial hatred and prejudice, and above all, to improve international relations.”

Taken from the 1969 50thAnniversary edition of the PSMLA Bulletin. (This information was a reprint from the 1948 Bulletin.) 

In honor of the 100-year Anniversary of PSMLA, we have a special deal: Join for 3 years for $100.00 until October 26, 2019.
