Biographical/Historical Note: 
          The first Development and Alumni publications were initiated in 1961 by Bob Ballentine, the first Public Relations Director.  In addition to publications, the office has been responsible for alumni affairs, annual giving, and other organized fundraising campaigns.  Over decades the office underwent a number of reorganizations with numerous directors, systems, programs, and publications, including Passing In Review, The Woodward Academy Review, and Academy.  Beginning in the early 1980s under R.L. Slider and Sandra Pounds Slider, the Development Office began to publish a newsletter, entitled Aerie, to keep parents better informed about the school.  Although it was formally called A Publication of the Woodward Academy Parents Club, the newsletter was published in and distributed from the Development Office.  This collection was transferred to the Archives by Sandra Pounds Slider from her Development Office files.

          Arranged in chronological order,  this collection consists of 100 multi-page printed newsletters,  issued originally monthly and then at irregular intervals, 1981, 1983-1991.  Each newsletter is printed on 8.5x11 paper in a variety of differentiating colors.  The collection consists of 10 files, with each file containing one calendar year, including some duplicate copies.
