The November Council meeting was the last one that past-President Arthur Bienenstock (left) attended as a member of the Presidential Line. To commemorate his four years of service, APS Executive Officer Kate Kirby presented Bienenstock with what she described as “bedtime reading”: a bound volume of the minutes of the five Executive Board and two Council meetings that he chaired during his Presidency in 2008.

Sorters for the APS “April” Meeting met early this time around, because the meeting will, in fact, take place in mid-February. Just before Hallowe'en, over 20 sorters met at the American Center for Physics in College Park, Maryland.
