Numerous visitors stopped by our 3rd annual HRC booth during the 2012 annual meeting in Portland last August. Lots of posters were on view, generating lively discussions.

Draft of Living Past Presidents’ Timeline
Jean Langenheim displayed a draft of the print timeline of ESA presidents since 1968 at the HRC booth in Portland. Above, she discusses details with Dennis Knight, HRC chair. This work-in-progress is new this year, but is planned to be completed in time for the 2015 centennial. A matching interactive timeline is also in preparation.

A unique feature of the Living Past President’s timeline is that it contains each president’s synopsis of his or her term in office, enabling viewers to get an overview of the history of ESA from the perspective of ESA’s top role. The challenges they faced and the initiatives they launched make interesting reading and enable members to track changes in the organization and the development of new ideas.
