A Heartfelt Happy Valentine’s Day from AIHP

Happy Valentine’s Day from the AIHP!  As a special membership perk, AIHP has created some bespoke AIHP valentines for members to give to their colleagues, co-workers, or that special someone. All of the images used on the valentines come directly from the archival collections of the Institute.

This is just one example of the many Valentine’s Day cards created by archivist Hannah Swan. Members should check their email for a message from AIHP that includes links and instructions for downloading and printing their valentine. To learn more about the background of each valentine, be sure to check out the “Visual Guide” link included in the email!

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
AIHP wouldn’t be the same
Without members like YOU!

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day and be sure to eat lots of chocolate and spend time with your loved ones!
