Earlier editions of the the Fellows' biographies were published in hardcopy. The costs and difficulties associated with hardcopy publications are obvious, and increased each year as more members joined the ranks of Fellows.

The year 2006 marked the introduction of the online version of the Fellows history and biographies. Use of this format not only saves time and money; it also makes it easier to update. After all the biographies have been published, we hope to make it possible for Fellows to expand their biographies beyond those prepared at the time they became Fellows. We believe this is important, as the need to update demonstrates one of the important characteristics of so many of our Fellows - continued service.

We also hope to update older biographies, adding photographs and other missing information as it is offered by chapter historians and others.
