Preserving The Past To Inspire The Future For 50 Years
Our group was organized in 1971 and published the first Bulletin May 1972. The Bulletin is devoted to copies and abstracts of original source data relating to Northeast Tennessee and adjacent areas. The Association publishes the Bulletin semi-annually – April and October. In 2016 WAGS went to an all digital format and our Bulletin is available online for all members. (Preview Bulletin)
