convenient access to its various components. Our emphasis thiscoming
year will be to bolster its content, both in termsof information and in
links to useful materials. We have also greatly expanded theCFH eMail
list this past year and beginning in 2000(the last year of the century) we
will beutilizing the List on a more regular basis to circulate information,
updates, and endless appeals for peopleto pay their dues (just kidding
about the dues). If you are not on the eMail list, you areinvited to visit
the website and sign on.
The NEWSLETTER's cycle, wehave decided, will now roughly
parallel theacademic year, with one issue in the fall semester and one in
the spring semester.In years in which there is a CFH conference, the fall
issue will comeearlier in the semester to publicize that meeting. In odd-
numbered years, the fallissue will come closer to the end of the semester
to emphasize membership renewal and development.
As usual, we thank those who takethe time to send in news items,
suggestions, and garage saleleft-overs. We solicit yourcontributions.

CFH Session at the AHA 2000
The last CFH-AHA gathering of themillennium (thrill!!) will be in
Chicago on Saturday, January8, 2000, beginning at 7:30 AM in the
Wisconsin Room ofthe Marriott (540 N. Michigan Avenue) with our
customary coffee hour. At 9:15 we will move overto the Purdue Room
for a business meeting meeting followed by a paperby Mark Noll of
Wheaton Collegeon "George Rawlyk's Contribution to Canadian History
as a Contribution to US History."Discussion will ensue.
Dick Pierard, ourbeloved secretary-treasurer, invites "all at the
convention or just in the area, tobe sure to drop in."(As if people are
"just" going to be in this area inthe middle of winter. I think this means
that you can come, even if you haven'tpaid the AHA's exorbitant
membership and registration fees or the CFH'srisibly low dues, so bring a
friend or two and some non-member guests.)
