Central States Archaeological Societies 2004 July Journal

Editor CSAJ

Dear Members,
Happy Birthday, Central States Archaeological Society! Fifty years and getting stronger every day!

Needless to say, it has been an actionpacked quarter since the April issue. I requested photographs and articles about pottery and vessels from our various states, and I got it.Thank you very much! I received enough material to create yet almost another whole Journal. It was very hard to choose from what was sent to me. Members, you are a great group of people. I hope you find the representation offered mindful of each state. I'd like to give special thanks to everyone who took the time to send material for this issue. It has been a great quarter and I certainly appreciate everything that you have done to make this Journal a success. Keep up the good work! As you know from previous articles and information, the October 2004 issue will be a special edition. John Crowley has been hard at work compiling and creating a 50th anniversary edition of the Central States Archaeological Journal.

You'll receive the commemorative edition in early October. John has been working hard to create a commemorative edition reminiscent of the old format. My next Journal will be the January 2005 issue. It will feature Texas, Wisconsin, and Minnesota. As you may have noticed from current advertising, this month, July, is the actual anniversary of the Central States Archaeological Society. We are celebrating this great event by creating and offering all 50 years of CSAS Journals in a CD format with a search engine to find information by title or author. We're currently offering a pre-publication price for people who want to order/sign up early. I understand and appreciate that nothing will replace the actual hard copy Journals that each of us own, but having a set of CDs will enable each of us to research and find information within minutes. If interested in the set of CDs, please contact me asap so I can get your name on the list for the pre-publication price. I do want to mention that during the past quarter, the CSAS lost a valued member.

A member who dedicated a large portion of his life to the CSAS and the Green River Archaeological Society, Mr. Lawrence Tully. His obituary is featured below. Again, please take time to pre-order your 50 years on CD.
You can contact me at my email address,
LAWoman2u@aol.com or by telephone, 502-262-9501, or 800-457-2424. ext. 5257. I look forward to hearing from many of you.
