RCHS Newsletter is produced two or three times a year; in addition to news of conference plans it also includes lists of members and their addresses, details of new members and their special interests, details of new publications by members, news and notes about such matters as archives, conferences of other bodies, book recommendations, members' work in progress, members' moves and promotions, and obituaries of members who have died.
