Happy National Memo Day! Our holdings are brimming with memorandums from a variety of government agencies. Memorandums are written messages which can document anything: the installation of a new water fountain, organizational changes, policies, and much more. Featured here is a memorandum related to the archaeological investigation at El Morro, which is part of the San Juan National Historic Site in Puerto Rico. This memo details the work that has already been performed and also includes photographic attachments to document progress made on the dig. Check out the rest of this memo here: https://catalog.archives.gov/id/40304916. Want to learn more about our holdings? You can check out our online catalog (www.catalog.archives.gov) and make an appointment to view our holdings at the National Archives at Philadelphia by calling (215) 305-2044 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
