DC Watch is home to wealth of historical documents (DC history IV)

If you're looking for old documents and assessments of policies and politics, DC Watch has a collection worth looking through.

You'll find, for instance, some interesting documents about the Public Benefit Corporation, the old owner and operator of DC General Hospital when it was operational; links to community opposition to the convention center; and a bibliography including book, magazine articles, and reports.

This info is useful because it puts current community issues in context, especially for new residents.   The Shaw Coalition page is particularly relevant since some of the coalition's concerns related to parking, a topic high on the list of planners today.
