Caryn Ann Harlos LP History Project:

 

Historic information of the Libertarian Party on the web. Project began in May of last year.

This would have drawn from several different websites including LPedia.

IT committee is not completely populated.

 

Original Lpedia had a large volume of pictures.

We do need one more trusted wiki editor.
