The 1966 Annual Meeting

        The 1966 Annual Meeting of the Society will long be remembered by those who attended as a very wonderful experience. It will also be remembered by a very large number of dedicated people as a time of hard work and tremendous activity, working against deadlines for setting up the show and for clearing out afterward.
        Some 340 people registered and most of them were in attendance at the various sessions at the Sherwood Inn on the outskirts of Tacoma. A number of very interesting papers were presented, most of which we hope will be printed in the Bulletin, as copy becomes available.
        The Committee Chairmen who functioned so well were as follows: General Program, Bruce Briggs and Fred Robbins, co-chairmen; Registration, Frank Guhr; Show, Mr. and Mrs. Bob Badger; Publicity, John Eichelser; Tours, Warren Berg; Brochure, Mrs. Roy Hacanson; Transportation, Sgt. Ed Winterling; Decorations, Mrs. Ted Fawcett; Treasurer, George Harrison. The general coordinator was Roy Hacanson, President of the Tacoma Chapter.
