The Society of Architectural Historians is pleased to announce the establishment of a new fund named in honor of longtime executive director Pauline Saliga. The Pauline Saliga Fund will be used to defray SAH’s ongoing technology expenses and recognizes her achievements as a visionary proponent for new technologies in the digital humanities.

“SAH is thrilled to launch this fund in honor of Pauline, who is so beloved and valued by our community for her vision and accomplishments in the digital humanities. We are immensely grateful to the member who made the generous donation to establish the Pauline Saliga Fund,” said SAH President Patricia Morton.

During her 27-year tenure as executive director of SAH, Saliga guided digital projects such as JSAH Online, one of the first humanities journals to incorporate multimedia; SAHARA, an online archive of over 171,000 images of the global built environment used for research and teaching; and SAH Archipedia, an open access, peer-reviewed encyclopedia of the built environment of the United States.

SAH will use the new fund to defray annual expenses associated with sustaining the organization’s digital resources, as well as fundraising and marketing software, and other technology platforms that help SAH staff work efficiently, communicate effectively, and fulfill the Society’s educational mission.

Donations to the Pauline Saliga Fund of any size may be made online at or by mailing a check to SAH at 1365 N Astor Street, Chicago, IL 60610. If you have questions about the fund or donating, please contact SAH Director of Development Carolyn Garrett at
