HISTORY



i OF SCIENCE



SOCIETY


The Origin of the HSS Newsletter
Roger H. Stuewer, University of Minnesota


Thirty years ago, when the HSS
Newsletter was founded, the History of
Science Society was a remarkably different
professional organization than it is today. Its
membership was much smaller, and its
meetings took place in alternate years with
the American Association for the
Advancement of Science and the American
Historical Association. Its Councilmembers
offered valuable help and advice, but its
daily affairs were largely in the hands of its
dedicated officers and Editor oflsis, Robert
P. Multhauf. The steadfast Treasurer of the
Society, John G. Burke, remains in my
memory as one of its great unsung heroes.
The origin of the HSS Newsletter, however,
was tied directly to the election of a new
Vice President and a new Secretary of the
Societyin 1971, ErwinN. Hiebertandmyself.
I have described elsewhere my deep
professional debt and close personal
friendship with Erwin ever since I was his
graduate student at the University of
Wisconsin.' In 1971 we also were close
geographically. Two years earlier, after
twelve years onthe Wisconsin faculty, Erwin
left for Harvard University, and in 1971,
after four years on the University of
Minnesota faculty, I left for Boston
University. Erwin was elected HSS Vice
President in 1971 to succeed Lynn White,
Jr., as President two years later, and sometime
in the fall of 1971, John C. Greene, the long-
serving and enormously dedicated Secretary
ofthe Society, askedme ifI wouldbe willing
to succeed him beginning in 1972 if elected.
Thus it happened that Ijoined Erwin and got
my feet wet at the HSS Council meeting in
New York City after the Christmas holidays
in 1971.
At some point during that Council
meeting Erwin remarked that a number of


professional societies periodicallypublished
a newsletter to inform their members of fast-
breaking events and other news of their
professions, and he suggested that the HSS
shouldconsider doing so as well. The Council
embraced his suggestion and handed me
editorial responsibility-my first realjob as
incoming Secretary. My first act was to
establish a geographically representative
Newsletter Editorial Committee consisting
of senior scholars Bernard S. Finn, David L.
Lindberg, andJohnL. Heilbron, and graduate
students Fred Gregory, Richard H.
Schallenberg, and Arthur L. Norberg. News
items were to be sent to me, and after
assembling them I was to send a copy to
Bernard Finn in the Isis Editorial Office at
the Smithsonian Institution for printing and
distribution. Richard Schallenberg designed
the masthead, which for years after his early
death in 1980 served as a memorial to him.
The first issue of the History of Science
Newsletter was published and distributed to
the entire membership on schedule in
February 1972.
Beginning with that first issue, the
HSS Newsletter was published quarterly, in
February, May, August, and November of
each year. But already by the time its second
issue appeared, in May 1972, further change
had occurred. I had decided to leave Boston
University and to return to the University of
Minnesota, where I would be given an
opportunity to build up a program in the
history of science and technology by hiring
additional faculty members. As part of the
package, I also could hire a secretary,
Maurine Bielawski, who during my entire
six years as HSS Secretary rendered
exemplary service by typing up every single
issue of the HSS Newsletter save the first
one. With my return to Minnesota and the


centralization of activities there, the
Newsletter Editorial Committee, as I recall,
died a natural death, although for a time
individual members on it continued to
provide help and advice.
The HSS Newsletter was an
immediate andwonderful success. Issue after
issue carried announcements of awards and
honors received by HSS members;
information on new programs, new courses,
and new publications in the field; notices of
forthcoming conferences and meetings
throughout the world; and news about a host
of other activities in the profession. If I had
to single out its greatest contribution,
however, I would point to its influence in
opening up, inthe democratization ofthejob
market. Prior to 1972, knowledge of the
existence of newjobs was gained largely by

word of mouth, through private telephone calls and personal
correspondence, and slots often were spoken for or filled before
many of the young people entering the profession could seek job
interviews atthe annual meetings ofthe Society. The HSSNewsletter
changed that, gradually at first, but with increasing momentum as
time went on. Now new job openings were listed openly in the
Newsletter, and in the many supplements distributed to departments
between issues, so that young people no longer had to rely primarily
on their professors to inform them of job openings; they could
discover them for themselves and compete for them openly.
This transformation, in fact, came none too soon, since by
1972 the job market had contracted dramatically. Listen to the words
of future HSS President Richard S. Westfall in the first issue of the
Newsletter: "As you may know, during the past decade positions in
our fields have appeared to be virtually unlimited. That is no longer
the case." And those of Professor John W. Abrams of the University
of Toronto: "I do not know of any open positions in Canada for
historians of science...." Now young people at least could acquire
information on new jobs themselves. Conversely, they could inform
prospective employers of what they had to offer: The section on
"Dissertations Recently Completed or in Progress" in the very first
issue of the Newsletter contained no less than fifty entries from
seven universities in the United States and Canada and one each
from a university in England and Germany. Such open knowledge
aboutprospective employers and employeeswas simply unthinkable
prior to the existence of the HSS Newsletter.
The Newsletter, in sum, has served and continues to serve
many vital functions for the History of Science Society. As ErwinN.
Hieberthas remarked more than once to me and others, "How did we
ever live without it?" I know that I also speak for Erwin when I say
that both of us are proud of the roles we played in creating the HSS
Newsletter thirty years ago.

HISTORY OF SCIENCE SOCIETY NEWSLETTER APRIL 2002


Innovations in Education
Magic, Science, and Religion in Calgary
Margaret J. Osler, University of Calgary


In the late 1970s, I inherited a one-term (13 week) course on
Magic, Science, and Religion in Europe that two of my colleagues
in the Department ofHistory had developed in response to the popular
culture and widening scholarship ofthe late 1960s and early 1970s. As
I developed lectures, I felt overwhelmed with the volume of relevant
material, and in the early 1980s I expanded the course to a two-term
sequence, which I now cap at 125 students per term.
The firstterm ofthe course covers the period from Augustine
to Galileo; the second from 1600 through twentieth-century debates
about scientific creationism. While it is no substitute for the history of
science survey, it is nowthe entry-level course inmy history ofscience
sequence that includes the survey and a variety of more specialized
seminar courses.
My version of this course focuses on the development of
ideas and intellectual issues. The guiding principle for both terms is
the notionofconceptual frameworks. Ratherthanproviding essentialist
and anachronistic definitions of the three key terms "magic,"
"science," and "religion" I try to make the point that different ways
of understanding the world rest on different assumptions about what
kinds of entities exist in the world, how these entities interact, and how
we can know about them. For each topic, I try to analyze the
assumptions underlying different views of the world and the broader
reasons why thinkers have adopted one set of assumptions or another
in particular historical contexts. I also try to make the point that the
relationships among these conceptual frameworks is far more
complicated and diverse than that of conflict and that the history we
are examining is not a Manichean story about the development of the
light ofreasontriumphing overthe forces ofdarkness and superstition.
Instead, I focus on examples of interaction and interpenetration, and
I examine ostensible conflicts carefully to see exactly what was at
stake between the conflicting parties.
As background to the first term, I spend two weeks of lecture
describing the major themes of the Judaeo-Christian and Greek
background to Western intellectual history- the basis for considering
the sometimes-uneasy marriage between Athens and Jerusalem.
Topics discussed, however briefly, include various schools of pre-
Socratic philosophy, Plato, Aristotle, Epicureanism, and Stoicism, as
well as basic ideas in Old and New Testament religion, including the
concepts ofGod, creation, providence, salvation, and the Apocalypse.
(Surprisingly for conservative Albertans, many students have no
notion either of the main tenets of Christianity or of the Bible.) This
introduction not only provides conceptual background for the course
but also introduces the students to some of the names and vocabulary
that they will need to understand what follows.
The first substantive unit, lasting about two weeks, deals
with the development of the concept of witchcraft from Augustine's
opinion that witchcraft belief is illusory to the full-blown concept of
witchcraft as a pact with the Devil articulated in the Malleus
Maleficarum in the late fifteenth century. I follow the evolution ofthe
concept through various Church documents and try to sort out the
influences that contributed to the concept, including the assimilation
of pagan deities and practices into early Christianity, the influence of


dualism derived from Zoroastrianism and Manicheanism, the
development of the notion of heresy, the role of the Cathars and the
Albigensian Crusade, and finally the influence of the Inquisition on
the formation ofthe mature concept. My approach is stronglyinfluenced
byGeoffrey Russell's Witchcrii,, 11 iKL 1,JJk .L: Thethesisofthis
part of the course is that witchcraft involves magical practices (or
accusations of such) butthatwitchcraft itself, inthe medieval Christian
context, is a form of perverted religion.
Turning from Church doctrine and popular culture to the
ideas of philosophers and theologians, I devote the following three
weeks to questions aboutthe relationship between science andreligion
in the Middle Ages. The opening section on science as handmaiden to
theology relies heavily on David Lindberg's work on Augustine and
Roger Bacon. (See his article, "Science as Handmaiden: Roger Bacon
and the Patristic Tradition," Isis: 1987, 78: 518-536.) I begin with an
account of the formation of the seven liberal arts in late antiquity and
show how early medieval thinkers used natural knowledge in the
interests of religion and theology. The impact of the translations of
classical works from Arabic provides the focus for a section on the
making ofmedieval natural philosophy as Christian theology confronts
Greek philosophy. Among other things, I discuss the development of
the universities, curricular issues, the role oftheology in the universities,
and the attitudes of various figures to the relationship between faith
andreason. The backgroundto andconsequences ofthe Condemnations
of 1277 are the focus of this discussion. I conclude this discussion of
medieval thought with a consideration of the relationship between
natural philosophy and natural theology during the later Middle Ages.
Renaissance humanismprovides the backgroundfordiscussing
the Hermetic tradition. This part ofthe course examines the rise ofhigh
magic as a way of understanding the relationships among natural,
human, and supernatural worlds. I include a couple of lectures on
alchemy and astrology including Renaissance debates about astrology
and its theological implications. I illustrate one of the lectures on
astrology by examining the horoscope of a particular individual.
The Reformation and its aftermath furnish the context for the
witch craze of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In this section
ofthe course, I discuss the popular and social dimensions ofwitchcraft
more than the theological issues considered earlier. I have found Keith
Thomas' Religion and the Decline of Magic particularly useful as a
source of ideas and examples.
The firstterm ends withabrieflookatthe Copemicanrevolution.
My emphasis here is on Kepler's Pythagoreanism and its relationship to
his religious views and, finally, on Galileo and the Church.
The secondterm, running from 1600 throughthe late twentieth
century, is organized around the changing relationships between
science andreligion. The seventeenthcentury is time whentheological
considerations play a major role in the choice of a new philosophy of
nature. During the eighteenth century, the positions of reason and
religionbecome reversed, andreason emerges as the universal criterion.
During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries especially after
Darwin- science displaces theologyas the startingpoint for discussions
of human nature.


HSS COUNuCIL CANDMDATEs 2003






HSS COUNCIL CANDIDATES 2003


The opening section involves a lengthy consideration of the
development of both the mechanical philosophy and the chemical
philosophythatderived fromthe ideas ofParacelsus. These philosophies
portray the world in very different terms, and the debates between their
advocates illustrate the close interplay among magic, science, and
religion during this period. Following an overview ofthe ideas of Ren6
Descartes and Pierre Gassendi, founding fathers of the mechanical
philosophy, I discuss questions about how different theological
presuppositions informed their respective versions ofthatphilosophyof
nature. I then present the chemical philosophy by discussing the
Rosicrucians and the ideas of Robert Fludd, considering a number of
topics over which the Paracelsians and the mechanical philosophers
disagreed, including the weapon salve (always a hit with the students),
educational reform, and the reality of witchcraft. I devote about a week
each to Robert Boyle and Isaac Newton, who are excellent examples for
the course because alchemy andtheologyplayedimportantroles intheir
approaches to natural philosophy. I conclude this part ofthe course with
a discussion ofthe Leibniz-Clarke correspondence andthe rise ofdeism
in the early eighteenth century.
Emphasizing the shift in intellectual authority, the course
continues with an examination of the Enlightenment critique of
religion, culminating in David Hume' sDialogues on NaturalReligion
and skepticism about miracles. I then turn to a consideration of
historical thinking, both in biblical scholarship and the development
ofthe higher criticism and in issues about the history of the Earth and
the history of life. I discuss the importance of the higher criticism in
terms of its challenge to literal interpretation of Scripture and as an
application of"scientific" methods to study of the Bible. A couple of
weeks are devoted to the development of the theory of evolution,
especially an analysis of the concept of natural selection and to
theories about human evolution. The remaining lectures consider a
variety of religious reactions to evolution, ranging from the scientific
naturalism of Thomas Huxley to late twentieth-century scientific
creationism. I consider the spiritualist rejection of scientific creation
by Alfred Russel Wallace and the Society of Psychical Research,
attempts to unite Christian theology with Darwinian evolution, and
the rise of fundamentalism in North America leading up to the Scopes
Trial. The emphasis here is on questions about the interpretation of
Scripture and the theory of evolution's challenge to the Christian
doctrines of creation, providence, design, and human nature. Tracing
creationist arguments through the twentieth century, the course ends
on an ironic note: the scientific creationists, although opposing the
theory of evolution, implicitly accept the fact that science has become
the ultimate arbiter of truth in the modern world.
The choice oftextbooks forthis course is not straightforward,
because the course does not follow any standard format. Because the
course draws students from all over the university, I cannot assume
that they have much relevant background or that they will be willing
to read overly technical material. Most recently, I have used the
following books for the first half of the course: David Lindberg, The
Beginnings of Western Science, Brian P. Levack, The Witch-Hunt in
Early Modern Europe, Allen Debus, Man and Nature in the
Renaissance, and Arthur Koestler, The Sleepwalkers. For the second
half ofthe course I have been using John Hedley Brooke, Science and
Religion: Some Historical Perspectives, David Lindberg and Ronald
Numbers, eds., God andNature: Historical Essays on the Encounter
between Science and( I.. i iini. I I \ hicliijcl R Lu,. TheDarwinian

Revolution. My course outlines are usually available on the University
ofCalgary HistoryDepartment Web sitehttp://hist.ucalgary.ca/courses/
courses.htm. Because class size is so large, I lecture. If one could teach
this course with smaller sections or at a more advanced level, it would
lend itself well to a discussion format and the use of primary sources.
The assignments for both terms are similar. In addition to
weekly readings, there are a one-hour midterm, a two-hour final, and
a term paper. The mid-term and final, both consisting of essay
questions, are worth fifty percent of the grade. The term paper
accounts for the remaining fifty per cent of the grade. The assignment
for the paper is to select an individual from the period who wrote on
relevant topics. On the basis of the students' own reading of writings
by the person selected, they are to write a 2500-word paper discussing
the person's views on the relationship between at least two ofthe three
magic, science, and religion. One of their tasks is to determine how
their subject defines the key terms. I ask them to turn in an outline and
bibliography around the middle ofthe term in order to avoid disasters
resulting from choosing inappropriate topics. Reading the outlines
also gives me the opportunity to suggest additional bibliography. I try
to convince them that the more narrowly they refine their topics, the
more interesting their papers will be- both to them and to their readers.
Although many balk at having to find a person to write about, most
plunge into the assignment and do fairly well. Although certain
obvious topics such as Galileo and the Church, Hildegard von
Bingen, Einstein, and Descartes are selected with great frequency,
limitations on library resources force students to strike out in more
original directions, for example, Calvin's criticism of the Roman
Catholic sacraments exemplifies his views ofthe relationship between
magic and religion or an analysis of the relationship between magic
and religion in the paintings of Nicolas Poussin.
Student response to the course is generally positive: every
term sees high enrollments. They complain about having to choose
their own paper topics and about running out of time on exams. They
remark that the second half of the course has more to do with science
and religion than with magic. One area I am thinking of developing is
nineteenth-century occultism and its twentieth-century aftermath.
But time is precious: what topics would I have to sacrifice in order to
add this one? Many different kinds of students are attracted to this
course. Overthe years I have encountered covens ofwitches, practicing
Hermeticists, New Age feminists, positivist scientists, and
fundamentalist Christians
The scholarly resources for a course like this are immense.
I have often imagined designing a four-year curriculum that would
actually provide students the background to benefit fully from a

Contributions for the History of Geophysics and Cosmical Physics. This series of
history of geophysical books, published by Science Edition, D-28777 Bremen, started in
2000. Volume 1 comprises the discussion ofHans Ertel' s paper on causality, freedom ofwill
and teleology as a problem of natural philosophy. Volume 2 gives a review of the general
problems of "History and Philosophy of Geophysics." Volume 3 presents the papers on
Ether by Albert Einstein, Gustav Mie and Emil Wiechert. It includes the letters in this topic
by David Hilbert to Gustav Mie. Volume 4 presents the biographical sketches of various
scientists, their "Pathways to Science," including papers by Sir IanAxford, FRS, Alan Cook,
FRS, Syuin-I. Akasofu, Gerald Friedman et al. Volume 5 discusses the changes in
interpretation of auroras, and presents with original sources the discussion of the aurora of
1716 March 17. Volume 7 (2002) includes the lectures given at the Hanoi Conference on
"Solar Variability and Geomagnetism." The books can be ordered from Science Edition,
Hechelstrasse 8, D-28777 Bremen, Germany.

The Science, Medicine, and Technology in Culture group at Penn State is working toward
the organization of a volume presenting case studies of what Robert Proctor has called
"agnatology" meaning the social construction of ignorance. The group is compiling a
bibliography of work in this area, loosely understood to constitute how ignorance in diverse
realms is produced or maintained through e.g. deliberate or inadvertent neglect, secrecy and
suppression, document destruction, and myriad forms ofculturopolitical selectivity. The point
is to develop tools for understanding how and why diverse forms ofknowledge "did not come
to be," or were delayed, or long neglected, etc., at different points in history. Examples might
be the ignorance of cancer hazards produced by the "J'd I"'' peddled by trade associations
(Phillip Morris's "doubt is our product"), or the non-transfer of birth control technologies from
colonial outposts to imperial centers (by virtue of successive chains of disinterest and
suppression), or the non-development of certain technologies by virtue of military apathy or
classification status, etc. Please send suggestions of people working on this topic and/or work
already published in this area (perhaps including allied concepts of secrecy, uncertainty,
confusion, impotence, silence, absence, etc. as pertains to science plus whatever literature
there may be on "in-principle" unknowabilities). The idea is that a great deal of attention is
given to epistemology (the study ofhow we know), when "how or whywe don't know" is often
just as interesting and vastly understudied by comparison.

Eighteenth-Century Thought is a new international, interdisciplinary annual. The goal of
the journal is to support the study of early modern thought through the publication of
research pertinent to the fields of philosophy, natural philosophy, medicine, law,
historiography, political theory, religion, economics, and the human sciences as they were
conceived and practiced from the mid-seventeenth century to the early nineteenth century.
The journal will distribute such studies in an overtly interdisciplinary forum, comprising not
only papers on these subjects of common interest to scholars of these various disciplines,
but also papers that themselves exemplify the highest standards of interdisciplinary
research. Editorial correspondence and submissions shouldbe addressed to Professor James
G. Buickerood, Editor, Eighteenth-Century Thought, Department ofPhilosophy, University
of Missouri, St. Louis, 8001 Natural Bridge Road, St. Louis, MO 63121; Web site: http:/

relationship among greed, gratitude, and environmental practice. Fiction, non-fiction, and
personal essay manuscripts should be no longer than 2,000 words, typed and double-spaced,
pages numbered, and word count noted. Poetry submissions may contain up to three poems.
All submissions must be accompanied by a self-addressed, stamped envelope. Submitted
work will be subject to review, and decisions can be expected within three months. Whole

The Society is pleased to report that Joy Harvey has been appointed as the interim editor
ofthe Isis CurrentB, i/i'., ,-i, i/ Dr. Harvey will guide production ofthe 2000 and 2001
CBs. A Harvard Ph.D. and the author of Almost a Man of Genius: Clemence Royer,
Feminism, and Nineteenth-century Science, she has written extensively on gender and
science and brings years of library and other editorial experience in the history of science
to the position.

Ongoing editorial duties for the CB will be taken up by Stephen Weldon (pictured
below), who has been hired as the History of Science Society's Bibliographer. He will
take over the compilation ofthelsis Curre,, i B, /,,,ii .i I in .u ly, 2002 and will also join
the faculty of the University of Oklahoma's history of science department at that time.
Dr. Weldon took his doctorate from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, writing a
dissertation on the history of secular humanism in America. He has worked for the
Society for several years as managing editor of Osiris and Isis and helped manage the
publication of the Society's award-winning commemorative volume Catching Up with
the Vision. Currently a visiting scholar at Cornell University, he also serves as managing
editor of G-Cubed, an electronic journal published by the American Geophysical Union.

American Council of Learned Societies' Conference of Administrative Officers Retreat
"Learned Societies in the 21st Century"


The 2001 ACLS Conference of Administrative Officers (CAO)
retreat, attended by HSS Executive Director, Jay Malone,
focused on "Learned Societies in the 21st Century." The retreat
offered presentations, discussions, and workshops on how learned
societies are changing, what challenges and opportunities this
presents, and how the nuts and bolts of learned society operation can
be adjusted to meet current and future needs. A census of learned
society data for 1989, 1994 and 1999; a survey of individual
members of ACLS constituent societies; and written statements
addressing the challenges and opportunities provided a context for
discussion of these issues.
The retreat was planned in response to CAO members'
desire for in-depth examination and collaboration on the topics
mentioned above. The Planning Committee developed two projects
to gather data that would inform the retreats' discussion. The first
was a census of ACLS constituent societies that asked about
membership size, annual meeting attendance, budget, and staff.
Second, ACLS contracted with the Center for Survey Research of
Indiana University to conduct a survey of members of ACLS
constituent societies seeking to understand the motivations for
joining and participating in learned societies (our thanks to HSS
members who filled out this survey). A notebook containing census
and survey data as well as the written statements by CAO members
about various aspects of learned-society management (membership
issues, mission androles, and leadership and governance) constituted
the agenda for the retreat. Exhibits of journals, newsletters, books,
and other publications of the constituent societies were displayed
during the retreat.
Rebecca Chopp, Dean of the Yale Divinity School and
president of the American Academy of Religion, gave the keynote
address, in which she charted the course of the university system,
asking whether learned societies see their own course as a similar
one. Chopp compared the early American college/university to a
cohesive village, where scholars from various fields worked as a
community and had a strong rapport with their local publics. The rise
of the disciplines and specialization within them led to the next
phase, in which the university became stratified into the traditional
departmental structure, and fields of study grew increasingly isolated
from one another. The third phase, which is currently emerging,
Chopp compared to a "global city": scholars are doing more
interdisciplinary work and collaborating with those in other fields.
The structural manifestation of this stage is seen in the rise of
university centers, which address the needs of many disciplines and


provide an intersection not afforded by departments. Dean Chopp's
schemaproved to be touchstone for subsequent session discussions
as the CAO considered its implications for learned societies and
their members, the majority of whom are academics working within
the university structure.
While Chopp's keynote address provided a theoretical
framework for the retreat, Catherine Rudder, School of Public
Policy, George Mason University and former Executive Director,
American Political Science Association, laid the groundwork in her
analysis of census and survey data. Although Rudder cautioned
everyone in the use of the data, a key conclusion drawn from the
survey is that scholars join societies for the benefits arising from
"solidary." This infelicitous word describes the intangible
community-building benefits that academic societies provide to
their members. If this is indeed accurate, the central question then
becomes "How do we build community in our Society?"
Rudder's commentary preceded concurrent tradecraft
(learned society management and operation) workshops, which ran
in three separate sessions, on Web sites, legal and financial issues,
annual meetings, membership, fund raising, online publications,
long-range planning, and employment services. Plenary sessions on
learned societies' missions and roles, membership issues, and
leadership and governance were followed by break-out discussion
groups that reconvened for summation. All administrative officers
had a role as speakers, group facilitators, or recorders/reporters,
which fostered a spirit of inclusiveness and collaboration.
In addition to Chopp and Rudder, other guests/speakers at
the retreat were Lindy Biggs, Associate Professor of History at
Auburn University and former Executive Secretary of the Society for
the HistoryofTechnology, who providedobservations andcommentary
for a wrap-up session, and Sally Gregory Kohlstedt, Professor of
History of Science, University of Minnesota, as an observer from the
American Association for the Advancement of Science.
CAO members came away from the retreat with new
perspectives on the many practical problems of society management
and ideas for new programs and ways to share resources. In a spirit
facilitated by the retreat's program and goals, the CAO displayed a
remarkable desire to work together and assist one another with the
challenges encountered in learned-society administration.

Guide to the Profession in 2002

After an interval of 10 years, the Society is preparing a new Guide to the History ofScience.
Although this new Guide will retain some of the features of the 1992 Guide, its preparation
and capabilities will be reflective of the electronic age. Most of the information collected for
the 2002 Guide will arrive via the Internet. Roger Turner, the HSS Information Manager,
has constructed databases that will enable our contact persons to input their information after
they receive a coded identification number. Internet input will not only expedite the process
and keep costs down, it will also allow contributors to update their record at their leisure and
to review what the finished entry will look like. Subsequent updates to the Guide should also
be simplified, enabling us to produce a true triennial publication.
Perhaps the best feature of the new Guide will be its increased usefulness. Since the
information will reside on databases, members will be able to locate programs, journals,
museums, and a host of other details on the history of science through multiple search patterns.
Another innovation ofthe Guide will be its coding ofresearch interests. Rather than
simply repeating the interests that are located on the online membership directory, we will
classify persons and institutions by four areas of specialization: chronology; scientific
genus, such as astronomical sciences; geography; and topics. Much thought has gone into
these areas. For example, the Society has no standard nomenclature of research topics that
describes work in our field, making it difficult to track scholarly interests in the history of
science. We wanted to be able to determine the directions in which the field is moving and
so needed a set of topics that was more manageable than the 100 plus categories that are
featured in the membership directory. Accordingly, we went through all of the research
topics that had been used in the 1992 Guide, and compared these to topics used in the 1999
Current Bibliography, and a 1971 issue and a 2001 issue of sis. Through this process, we
produced a list of 11 topics that will be used in this and subsequent Guides.
We ask that if you are contacted by the Society regarding a Guide entry, please
respond as fully and as quickly as possible. We hope that the 2002 Guide will be a tool that
will benefit the profession for years to come.

National Coalition of
Independent Scholars

The National Coalition of Independent
Scholars (NCIS) was formed in 1989 to
facilitate the work of independent scholars.
Now international inmembership and scope,
NCIS supports independent-scholar groups
in the United States and abroad.
NCIS is unique among scholarly
organizations in its multi-disciplinarynature,
with members in the humanities, sciences,
and arts. Members share a concern for the
production of fine scholarship and for issues
that affect scholars working outside of an
institutional setting, including: access to
research libraries, archives, and other
scholarly resources; equal consideration in
competition for grants and fellowships;
inclusion in the scholarly review process
and the making of research policies.
NCIS is affiliatedwiththe American
Council of Learned Societies, through which
it serves as a national advocate for issues
affecting independent scholars. The Coalition
offers a forum forthe presentationofmembers'
work through its quarterly newsletter, The
Independent Scholar, its biennial national
conferences, and conferences co-sponsored
with local groups. It facilitates members'
access to libraries and archives by providing
personal letters of introduction, sponsors and
administers members' grants, offers annual
grants-in-aid for members' research, and
brings scholars together on the basis of shared
scholarly interests and needs. The NCIS also
operates the listserv H-Scholar, under the
aegis of H-Net, on which non-members as
well as members exchange information and
discuss issues ofcommon concerto working
scholars in many fields. NCIS's Web site
(www.ncis.org), availableto anyInteretuser,
contains a wealth of scholarly information.
Currently it receives an average of over 1,000
visits per month. The NCIS newsletter, The
Independent Scholar, is available by
subscription to non-members. NCIS
conferences and meetings are open to the
public. Interested individuals may request

HISTORY OF SCIENCE SOCIETY NEWSLETTER APRIL 2002


CRISIS AT THE SMITHSONIAN HSS RESPONDS


Many readers of this Newsletter know that
the Smithsonian Institution has held an
important role in the development of our
profession. The Smithsonian has, over
several decades, supported research and
public education in the history of science.
Some ofus have had the pleasure ofusing its
archives and artifacts in our research. Many
of us have worked at the Smithsonian's
museums or benefited from Smithsonian
fellowship programs.
The HSS Executive Committee and
Council have, therefore, been dismayed by a
brewing crisis in the Smithsonian's
management. For some years now the
Smithsonian has extended broader and
broader rights to private donors in its search
for funds to underwrite exhibits. Under the
supervision of Secretary Lawrence Small,
the first non-academic to head the
Smithsonian in its 160-year history, this
trend appears to have accelerated, with some
donors being given authority over exhibit
content, for example. The Small
administration has also taken widely
publicized steps to curtail research and
fellowship programs and intervened in the
management of activities that have
traditionally been under the supervision of
professional staff- such as the selection of
themes for exhibits.
Members of the Executive
Committee have written several letters to the
Regents ofthe Smithsonian in recent months
expressing concern about these and other
matters. In January 2002, with the approval
of Council, and atthe request ofthe Executive
Committee, our Secretary, Maggie Osler,
sent the following letter to each member of
the Smithsonian's Board ofRegents onbehalf
of the Society:




REMINDER: The Isis Bibliography
from 1975 to the present is available
online with the Research Libraries
Group (RLG). Members ofthe Society
may access the RLG Web site, and the
History of Science and Technology
Database (HST) through the HSS
homepage http://hssonline.org. RLG
has assigned us "Y6.G19" as a "User
Name" and "HSSDEMO" as a
"Password."


I am writing to the members of the Board of Regents of the Smithsonian Institution, in my capacity as
Society Secretary, on behalf of the Executive Committee of the History of Science Society. The History
of Science Society has noted the statements of concern by the American Historical Association, the
Organization ofAmerican Historians, theAmericanAnthropologicalAssociation, theAmerican Studies
Association, theAmericanAssociation of Museums, and other less closely related, but no less important,
scholarly and scientific associations regarding the failure of the present administration of the Smithsonian
Institution to:

leave control over the subject and content of exhibits (specifically those in the National
Museum of American History) in the hands of the scholarly staff, i.e., to refrain from dictating
programmatic decisions from the center or allowing them to be dictated by the wishes of
individual donors
ensure the public trust through openness and transparency regarding the terms on which the
Institution has accepted funds from individuals and corporations.

If we have waited until the present juncture to join with these sister societies in expressions of
concern, that is due not to an involvement any less deep with the Institution and its scholarly staff,
but rather reflects a reticence arising from the long and exceptionally close relationship between the
History of Science Society and the Smithsonian, especially with its National Museum ofAmerican
History (where the journal of our society, Isis was edited from 1964-1978 by Robert P Multhauf,
who also served terms as President of our society and as Director of that museum).

History of Science Society members hold positions in numerous other museums, institutes and offices
of the Institution, notably the National Air and Space Museum, the National Museum of Natural
History, the Institutional History and Archives Program, and the Smithsonian Institution Libraries.
The work of these scholars, as well as the services to scholarship provided by each of these Smithsonian
bureaus, is of great value to the history of science as a research field and has contributed inip. pi ,,1I.
to directing the attention of our discipline to material culture, and to the enlightenment of the public
regarding the nature of science, its role in society, and its cultural influences.

Thus it has for some while been a matter of particular concern to the History of Science ;r-" ii, i
Secretary Small has promulgated and reiterated a mission statement for the Smithsonian Institution
that fails to include historical research among its priorities. This omission undermines the Institution's
long-standing tradition of support for the historical scholarship of its curators, historians, and archivists
- a tradition that has ,, i l:. strengthened both the historical professions and the public understanding
of science and technology. We are also concerned that the Institution has ,: ili-. decreased, and
threatens to eliminate, funding for the long-standing program of fellowships bringing a vivifying
stream of scholars, both senior and junior, through the Institution. History of Science Society members
have often held these fellowships and can testify both to their significant impact on their own careers
and, more imip. I i il:. on their roles in enabling the museums to carry out their stated missions.

Now, however, as the search goes forward for a new director of the National Museum ofAmerican
History, that unit of the Smithsonian employing the largest number of historians of science and
technology and holding the U.S.'s indeed the Western Hemisphere's largest collection of scientific
and technological artifacts, we find it imperative to urge upon those ultimately responsible for the
direction of the Institution that the interests of scholarship generally, and that in the history of science
particularly, weigh heavily in this appointment. At issue is not only the scholarly character of that
museum, but also the future of the single most important venue in the United States for the interpretation
of the history of science and its cultural influences to the public. We ,iL, l'. hope that in making
this appointment the Smithsonian will demonstratively and effectively reaffirm its commitment under
its ten previous Secretaries to research as the foundation for all its programmatic activities by selecting
an accomplished scholar who manifestly delights in the company of other scholars and the
accomplishments of subordinates. For in any institution with a top-down, managerial organization,
with practical operational t i-.i ...1 ,1, 1i -I -i... nI il Ih J , i-. ni, L-oriented staff cannotprosper
without sincere and selfless fostering by a discriminating director. This was the case twenty and
more years ago in the National Museum of History and Technology, as indeed in the Smithsonian
generally. We urge that it become so once again.

Sincerely yours,

Margaret J. Osler, Secretary
History of Science Society

philosophy into nineteenth century natural "science" (1700-1900).
Enlightenment and Victorian natural philosophy will be discussed
in relation to the developing disciplines of geology, chemistry,
biology and medicine. Special focus will be paid to geochronology,
monstrosity, societies, the Darwinian paradigm, and the language of
science. Additionally, a reoccurring theme will be the conspicuous
role played by physico-theology during this period. This conference
is being held to celebrate the work of Prof. David M. Knight's forty-
year career in the history of science. Paper titles, registration forms
and other conference particulars are available at: http://
www.dur.ac.uk/m.d.eddy/Science&Beliefs.html. Featured Speakers
Include: Professor Peter Bowler (Queen's University Belfast),

21-22 September 2002. The School of History Technology and
Society, Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta will host theJoint
Atlantic Seminar in the History of the Physical Sciences
(JASHOPS) 2002. Papers are invited from pre-docs and recent post-
docs. The conference theme is Distributed Sites of Knowledge
Production, which is intended to explore the multiple spaces in
which knowledge has been produced, circulated, and transformed
through the ages (academia, industrial laboratories, the 'field,'
clinical practices, military laboratories, private homes, pubs,
museums, colonial expeditions, etc). Some financial support will be
available for graduate students. For further information please
contact: Jahnavi Phalkey (jahnavi.phalkey@hts.gatech.edu) or
Professor John Krige (john.krige@hts.gatech.edu), or write to either
at the School of History, Technology and Society, Georgia Institute
of Technology, D M Smith Bldg., 685 Cherry Street, Atlanta, GA
30332 -0345. Abstracts should be sent in by 25 April 2002.

Proposals are invited for contributed papers to sessions onThe Role
of Scientific Instruments in Warfareto be held at the 2002 History
of Science Society (HSS; Milwaukee 7-10 November 2002), the
2002 Society for the History of Technology (SHOT; Toronto 17-20
October 2002), and the 2003 Society for Military History (SMH;
Knoxville 1-4 May 2003) conferences, and to be combined into a
published survey volume on the topic. The goal of these sessions is
to investigate the military uses of scientific instruments, either as
distillations of scientific concepts forparaliterate users or as generative
objects for the development of military sciences and thought.
Generally, the concept of scientific instrument should here be
understood as material object or technologythat embodies scientific
theory that, used in a military setting, distinguishes it from a civilian
setting. It is hoped that these papers will cover scientific instruments
in war from a wide chronological base (pre-moder to present) and
from many different perspectives (organizational, artifactual,
logistical, orperceptual) andmany different disciplines (mathematics,
physics, chemistry, acoustics, biomedical, and so forth). Ultimately,
the published volume will seek to do more than combine narrowly
focused investigations of individual objects, and published
contributors will therefore be asked to place their specific
investigation in a wider framework, whether chronological or
thematic. Solicited contributions may be sought to fill gaps so that
the published volume serves as an introduction to the field as well
as showcasing individual important research. Further inquiries or
paper proposals (for either conference or a chapter in the published
volume) should be directed to: StevenA. Walton, MTU-Department
of Social Sciences, 209 Academic Office Bldg., Houghton, MI
49931; tel.: 906-487-2459; fax: 906-487-2468; e-mail:
sawalton@mtu.edu. Please include a title, abstract, and brief
curriculum vitae. Completedproposals shouldbe sent byl September
2002 for SMH.


FUTURE MEETINGS


The Society for the History of Technology (SHOT) will hold its
next annual meeting in Toronto, Canada, 17-20 October 2002. Once
the program is fixed, the committee hopes to have the accepted
abstracts available on the SHOT homepage at www.shot.jhu.edu.

Frontiers in Environmental History: Mainstreaming the
"Marginal." The program committee for the American Society for
Environmental History Annual Meetings to be held in Providence,
RI, 26-30 March 2003, invites proposals for panels, papers, and
posters. Proposals may address any area or field of environmental
history. However, in keeping with the theme of the conference, the
program committee specifically solicits submissions that call attention
to previously underrepresented world areas and intellectual
approaches. Panels on the environmental history of Africa, Latin
America, Asia, and Eastern Europe are particularly encouraged. Of
equal interest are subjects that examine urban and industrial
environments and those on the interface between environmental
history and disciplines such as geography, anthropology, ecology
and economics. By exploring the margins and encouraging
interdisciplinary conversations, we seek to expand the frontiers of
the field, and in the process, gain new insights on its traditional core.
The program committee strongly encourages proposals for complete
panels with four individual papers and a chair. In order to maximize
the number of papers and create more opportunity for creative
exchanges with members of the audience, the program committee
prefers not to include a commentator in each session. If you feel that
a discussant is essential for your panel, please include in your
application an explanation of why a commentator is intrinsically
necessary for its coherence. Please note also that although the
committee prefers full panels, individual paper proposals are
welcome. The committee seeks proposals from scholars across a
broad range of disciplines. Panels that are interdisciplinary or which
bring together papers on common themes from across different
world areas are particularly encouraged, as are those involving
scholars from traditionally underrepresented regions.
To apply, please download the form from the ASEH Web page
(http://www2.h-net.msu.edu/-environ/), and send SIX copies, along
with six copies of the required attachments to: Ravi Rajan, ASEH
Program Committee Chair, Department of Environmental Studies,
University of California, Santa Cruz, CA 95064, USA. Deadline for
submission: 1 September 2002.
Please feel free to contact any member of the program committee
should you have any questions: Colin Duncan, McGill University
(cduncan@leacock.lan.mcgill.ca); Nancy Jacobs, Brown University
(Nancy_Jacobs@Brown.edu); Byron Pearson, West Texas A&M
University (bpearson@mail.wtamu. edu); Stephanie Pincetl, University
of Southern California (pincetl@rcf.usc.edu); Ravi Rajan, University
ofCaliforia, Santa Cruz (srrajan@cats.ucsc.edu); Sylvia Washington,
Northwestern University (s-washington4@northwester.edu).
Mission statement: The American Society for Environmental History
seeks historical understanding of the human experience with the
environment. Drawing upon perspectives ranging from the liberal
arts to the social and natural sciences, the Society encourages cross-
disciplinary dialogue on every aspect of the present and past
relationship of humankind to the natural environment.
