This is based on a history by Agnes Niyekawa written probably in 1995 or 1996, supplemented with documents from the following years. Corrections and additions are most welcome.

02/08 R. Berger found support for his idea of producing a membership directory and promised a draft for the next meeting.
03/10 R. Berger’s membership directory draft was reviewed, and final format determined.
Another Significant Change
Until this year, meetings had taken place at 3:00 or 3:30, in the nearest thing to a conference
room in the speaker’s Department. Dr. Niyekawa started having the meetings in one of the smaller rooms at
the cafeteria, at noon. This change, plus notices in Ka Leo inviting anyone to attend, resulted in much
greater attendance thenceforth.
