WPRA, a historical retrospective 1958-2012

The first stirrings of what would eventually become the WPRA were in a grassroots effort to defeat a federal government proposal to convert the then-abandoned Vista del Arroyo Hotel (which now houses the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals) into an Army induction central serving the western U.S. 

The rest of the story is here, in a summary written by Chuck Hudson for WPRA's 50th anniversary in 2012.
