ET NEWS JOURNAL
====================================================================== 

I just finished scanning, optimizing, cropping, combining, and OCRing 
the 1920 edition of NFPA 72: 
http://www.etnews.org/index.php?s=586 

Apparently, in 1920, the National Board of Fire Underwriters didn't 
number their standards or, as they referred to them, regulations, but 
rather they named them. 

This 1920 edition is the oldest version I have of what is now called 
NFPA 72.  If you have an older version, please consider sharing it 
with me.  I'll scan it and safely return your document. 

I've got some old editions of NFPA 13, 14, 20, 70, 71, 72A-H, 73, 74, 
92A, and others that I'll scan and add to the website as time permits.
