ESA History by Bob Burgess

In about 1976, Dr. Robert Burgess prepared a review of ESA’s history that is the basis for much of our work here. We are expanding on it as we develop new information, but it remains an excellent review that is more contemporary with some of the topics covered in the Society’s development.
