From the Secretary-Treasurer
We had a marvelous time at the fall meeting at David Lipscomb
University in Nashville, Tennessee lastSeptember. Somewhere between
80 and 90 people were registered.We had 4 plenary sessions, a dinner
address by the eminent Southern historian WayneFlynt of Auburn
University, and 22 papers presented in parallelsessions. David Lawrence
and hiscolleagues at DLU did a bang-up job with the local arrangements,
while Chuck Weber of Wheaton College putlong hours into organizing a
program that was breath-taking in its sweep and diversity.
You will be pleased to hear that all the1997 issues of Fides et
Historia(nrs. 1, 2, and 3) have now been mailed, and you should have
yours bynow. If you did not receive them, check to make sure that we
have your correct mailing addressand that your dues have been paid.
Since we are currently a year behind ingetting the journal out, I have not
been dunning people for the next year's dues. However, Iam now ready
and waiting anxiously foryour check for 1998. Before you jump on me to
say you have already paid, pleaselook at your last cancelled check. I make
it a practice of writing on the check the year for which you are paying.That
makes your record keeping simpler.
