A few years ago we produced a CD ROM titled
"The Best of ISTF News and ISTF Noticias 1980-2004: and News Notes
1951-1974." Those of you who requested a copy may have noticed that
7 of Tom Gill's News Notes were missing. We simply had not found
copies, even after searching in several logical places.
However, thanks to Richard McArdle , who was going through his
father's old files, and to Marcus Robbins who was kind enough to
visit the Oxford Forest Information Service (Oxford University
Library Services), we now have the entire set of "News Notes",
along with a press release announcing the founding of ISTF on
December 14, 1950.
This complete set has been put into electronic format and made
available to one and all on the ISTF web site. Our hope is that it
may inspire some to become new members (click

members to remember the roots of our organization. For more on Tom
Gill, click here.
