Cur­rently the So­ci­ety is try­ing to as­sem­ble a full set of its pub­li­ca­tions which con­tain pré­cis of lec­tures pre­sented to the So­ci­ety down through the years.

If any mem­ber or for­mer mem­ber or the fam­ily of a de­ceased mem­ber has a copy, the com­mit­tee would wel­come and ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tu­nity to copy it. There is also a gap be­tween 1987 and 1993, with the is­sues miss­ing rang­ing from 1988 to 1992 but the com­mit­tee is un­sure if in fact is­sues were pub­lished in those years and again they would like to hear from copy hold­ers.

A sim­i­lar sit­u­a­tion ex­ists with the 1995 and 1996 is­sues and the com­mit­tee would like to hear from copy hold­ers. Any­one who brings them to tonight’s meet­ing is asked to lend them to the So­ci­ety for about week so that they can be copied af­ter which they will be re­turned to the copy own­ers.
