The progress which has been achieved is
entirely due to the efforts of the officers and committees.
My thanks for their particular cooperation go to all
members of the Executive Committee and to Charles
Zerwekh (Program Committee), Ethaline Cortelyou
(Nominating), Gerald Jahoda (Papers Review), David N.
Collins (Presentation of Papers), Eugene Garfield
(Photocopy Service), J. W. Perry (Program Planning),
Janet Vernon (Membership), M. G. Mellon (Speakers
Bureau), Mary Wendelschaefer (Public Relations),
Ivor Igelsrud (Bulletin Editor), and Herman Skolnik
(Chemical Documentation and Publication Committees).
I propose a special vote of thanks to Harriet Geer, who
not only handled her regular duties as Division Secretary
most competently but also reminded me frequently of
mine, took many of them off my hands, and uncomplainingly
did all the impossible things I asked her to do
in addition. And this is by no means a complete list
of all the Division members who worked hard for the
Division in official and unofficial capacities.
Finally, special thanks are due to Al Winstead,
Head of the ACS National Meetings Department, for
his courteous and effective cooperation with this
The best wish I can offer to my successor is
that he will have as hard-working and cooperative a
team as I have been fortunate enough to have.
Modem Trends in Documentation

This is the proceedings of a symposium held at the
University of Southern California in April, 1958. How
really innocent we are in the field of storage and
retrieval of 'information" is amply illustrated by the
contents of this symposium which is largely devoted
to automatic means. Although the user is frequently
mentioned he seems to exist largely on paper where
he remains a hypothetical figure whom no one really
seems to know.
No doubt considerable valuable time and effort went
into the technical studies reported. From some of the
papers themselves, however, and from the panel discussion
that followed, it appears, at least to this
reviewer, that the symposium ended like so many of
them do, with a note of great uncertainty as to what
we are really up to and why.
