Sipping, Supping, and Other Business

The AIP’s Niels Bohr Library & Archives in College Park, MD is a repository and clearinghouse for information in the history of physics, astronomy, geophysics and allied fields. The library also stores a treasure trove of historical documentation that detail interactions between AIP, its past or current member societies, and SSP.

The following 1979 memorandum from SSP’s pro tem president Mark Carroll provides a fascinating glimpse of an early board meeting.  File this under the “they-don’t-make-sipping-and-supping-meetings-like-they-used-to department!”
