About Adela Rogojinaru

We all miss Adela and recognize what an important scholar she was. And, of course, she was on the management committee of the European Public Relations History Network (EPRHN). […]

You may wish to share the news with colleagues and students, that the second book in my edited PR history series, Eastern European Perspectives on the Development of Public Relations (2014, Palgrave) was dedicated to Adela as well as including a chapter from her. After I heard of her passing, I was able to stop the book’s production and insert the dedication to her memory.

It is a small gesture but indicates my high regard for her. Please keep me advised on the formation of a Romanian archive of PR history and the plans for a conference. Both would be important initiatives for the scholarship of PR history and enduring memorials to Adela.
