Serving the Discipline and the Profession:

HSS Programs and the "Spirit of Volunteerism"
Michael M. Sokal, HSS President

For "Catching Up with the Vision" the 1999
prize-winning special issue of Isis conceived and
edited by Margaret W. Rossiter that celebrated the
Society's 75th anniversary I wrote an article trac-
ing the Society's history from 1970 with the subtitle,
"From Subscription Agency to Professional Society."
The article followed the Society's evolution through
a punctuated series of adaptations to changes (and
at times catastrophes) in its academic and social
environments. Through this development, the
Society grew from one serving its members largely
-in..i.,1h ; and its annual meetings to one that
"helps [its members] find jobs and place their stu-
dents, ... lobbies Congress and several federal
agencies, ... actively promotes education in its
field at all levels and in all sorts of institutions, and
... publishes (in print and on the World Wide Web)
a full range of professionally exciting and intellec-
tually stimulating materials." The last "Letter from

John Neu being honored for his decades of service at
the 75th anniversary HSS meeting at Pittsburgh.

the President," published in January 2004 with the
subtitle "Recent Successes and Exciting New Cha-
llenges," briefly outlined later changes in some of

these programs, and sketching
the further evolution of others
now seems appropriate.
The Society's primary pro-
grams of course remain its publi-
cations, includingIsis, Osiris, the
Isis Current /. '.. ,L and
the HSS Newsletter. In the
Newsletter's January 2005 issue
the Society's Editor Bernard V.

The revised classification scheme
and new indices first introduced in
the 2003 CB represent only the
first in a series of innovative fea-
tures that will emerge both in the
printed CB and in the on-line
HSTM Research Database during
the next few years.

Lightman most informatively reviewed Isis's current
condition ("ISIS One Year In: A Progress Report")
and the innovations, such as the new "Focus" sec-
tion, that he has introduced since he first became
editor inJanuary 2004. In that month, the
Newsletter presented Michal Meyer's insightful
interview with Osiris editor Kathryn M. Olesko,
which emphasized her .., 1 f.i i1i.. journal as pro-
moting "mediation between history and history of
science." The editors of the Society's major journals
have thus introduced new policies and features even
as they build on the successes of their predecessors.
In the meantime, the Society has arranged for all
HSS members not just individual subscribers to
receive Osiris as part of their regular memberships,
for only a minor dues increase. The University of
Chicago Press will soon make available additional
details about this new membership benefit, which
has excited all who've heard about it.

emerge both in the printed CB and
in the on-line HSTM Research
Database during the next few years.
In the meantime, the HSS
Newsletter itself, in its past several
issues, has grown to reflect the
careful design attention and experi-
enced editorial eye of Michal Meyer,
a graduate student in the University
of Florida's History of Science

Program. She's interviewed (in addition to Kathryn
Olesko) a series of HSS prizewinners, science jour-
nalists and broadcasters, and others, and in doing
so has illustrated the breadth of (and interest of oth-
ers in) our discipline and profession.

In Memoriam

Thomas M. Smith, professor emeritus of the history of science at the
University of Oklahoma, died in Norman on 9 February 2005 from
Parkinson's disease. He was 83 years of age. He had served on the
Oklahoma faculty for 32 years when he retired in 1991. Prior to his arrival
at OU in 1959, he had taught for three years at Cal Tech, and he had
worked for three years as a scientific historian with the U.S. Air Force Air
Research and Development I i,1111i 11,i Tom Smith was educated at UCLA
(BA. 1946, political science) and at the University of Wisconsin (MA. 1950,
Ph.D. 1955, history of science and history). In the Oklahoma history of sci-
ence program Tom Smith devoted a considerable part of his teaching effort
to courses in the history of science and technology in American culture.
He was particularly admired and respected for his mentorship of upper-
division undergraduate and graduate students in history of science, and
also of adult students in the College of Liberal Studies. Among many other
technical publications he was co-author, with Kent C. Redmond of
Fairleigh-Dickinson University, of f. -. hirlwind: The History of a
Pioneer Computer (Digital Press, 1980), and From Whirlwind to MITRE:
Thel. .,; j ". I.-' I rDefense Computer (MITPress, 2000).Tom
Smith is survived by his wife of 48 years, Elizabeth ('Libba'), and three chil-
dren Margaret, Malcolm, and Daniel and their families. The family
has suggested that memorial contributions may be made to the Thomas
M. Smith Fund, History of Science Collections. Checks should indicate
Fund no. 0032095 and be made payable to the OU Foundation, 100

sophisticated defense of natural areas (the Massachusetts campaign
against the gypsy moth in the 1890s), and the most sweeping federal sci-
entific program against invasives (including destruction of?: '7l ,h;i-. J .1',
cherry trees in 1910 and the use of totalitarian methods to eradicate the
medfly in 1929). Invaders could be vanquished, but there were costs and
unintended consequences, for both the environment and for science.
Broader issues concern how particular species have come to be interpreted
as invaders of the United States, and the ways that Americans' foreign and
military relations have shaped behavior toward other species.

Report on Council and Business Meetings in Austin November 2004
By MargaretJ. Osler, Society Secretary

W /e had a full agenda at last year's meeting. Major
W items dealt with included an interim report on the
present fund-raising campaign, a new proposal from the
University of Chicago Press for Osiris, and some proposals
concerning Society prizes.

Often large donors ask about the extent
of participation by the membership, and
an important point emerged from this in
the Council's discussion: we need a large

the Society I i., ..-l i ii.. who is responsible for producing
the annual Current l.'.. ..i il.i. ...i with Isis and available in a different
format to members via the HST Database. The terms of the grant stipulate that in
order to receive the NEH grant, HSS must raise money which the NEH will match
on a one-to-four basis. That is, for every four dollars we raise, NEH will match
one, up to a maximum of $125,000. In other words, we must raise a total of
$500,000 byJuly 2007. Meeting the match is a high priority for the Society.
President Sokal reported on progress to date. He noted that to meet our goals, we
must raise $160,000 byJuly 2005. The Executive
Committee has established a Development Committee that The number of sub

Schuman Prize as the Nathan Reingold Prize. As back-
ground to this motion, the Committee noted that the
Schuman Prize had never been endowed, but has been sup-
ported by the HSS for many years. Marc Rothenberg spear-
headed a successful campaign to raise money to endow the
prize, honoring the late Nathan Reingold. This motion
passed after considerable discussion.


Council also addressed the new proposal for Osiris
presented by the University of Chicago Press. The number of subscriptions to
Osiris has dropped to a level that the Press considers unacceptably low. To make
its publication financially viable, it proposed several different options ranging
from ceasing to publish Osiris to publishing it as a sixth issue of Isis every year
(the Current .:.'.. ,I .I being the fifth). The Committee on Publications,
after lengthy consideration of the proposals, recommended to the Executive
Committee that Osiris be bundled with Isis. Bundling means that the two
publications will each continue to have individual ISSNs,

History of Science Society Newsletter April 2005

(continued from p. 1)
The Society's annual meetings also continue to grow along many dimen-
sions, as our members employ novel formats to address all sorts of exciting
new intellectual questions and a continually widening range of topics. These

meetings attract attendees from all parts of
the world, including large numbers who iden-
tify themselves with other fields.
The quadrennial meetings the Society
sponsors with the British Society for the History
of Science and the Canadian Society for the
History & Philosophy of Science are equally
attractive. The most recent, hosted last summer
in Halifax, Nova Scotia, by CSHPS, proved a
real intellectual and i.I. iiiii" i1 success.

ing with cognate societies to resolve long-standing difficulties relating to
our fields' representation to the International Union of History & Philosophy
of Science. The resulting four-society consortium will work to ensure that
problems encountered in past years will not recur.
In the same way, the HSS program of honors and prizes has also taken
on a greater international presence than ever before. The 2004 roster of
prize winners (see "HSS Prizewinners," HSS Newsletter, January 2005)
includes scholars from Germany and England, and the program continues
to evolve in other ways. The Margaret W. Rossiter Prize for History of
Women in Science is now fully endowed and well established, succeeding
the previously unnamed award for work in the area. And as announced at
the Society's 2004 annual meeting in Austin
(and in the last Newsletter issue) the Henry

also voted to accept a major donation to estab-
lish the Suzanne J. Levinson Prize, a biennial
award that will honor a book in the "history of the life sciences or natural
li,,i.. Further details on this new prize will be forthcoming.
What's perhaps most impressive about this array of programs and activ-
ities is that it depends on and is made possible by the continued involve-
ment of scores of the Society's members. This report has mentioned the
names of many. But it has had to omit many more, such as the members of
our publications' advisory boards and the members of our several prize
committees. Officers of other societies and university and foundation offi-
cials are most impressed by the "spirit of volunteerism" that pervades HSS
activities and that has long served the Society well. To be sure, HSS does
have several full-time and part-time employees. But most who serve the
Society and its members including all of the officers and the editors of
our major journals carry out their tasks without HSS remuneration. They
all deserve our grateful admiration.
This HSS "spirit of volunteerism" also emerges in the voluntary finan-
cial contributions made by literally hundreds of members and friends of the
Society. This Newsletter issue (p. 22-23) lists more than 400 individuals and
institutions that have supported the Society's programs over the past five
years. Many have donated to the Sponsor-a-Scholar Program, which provides

HSS memberships to individuals in countries where currency inequities
effectively prevent them from joining the Society Numerous others have
helped endow the Rossiter and Reingold prizes, and have contributed to the
Hazen-Polsky Matching Fund, which supports HSS
educational initiatives developed by the Society's

on these resources, and ensuring their future is a goal around which HSS
members and friends have begun to rally. But HSS will not meet NEH's chal-
lenge and get the full amount of this grant unless it matches it on a four-to-
one basis, so that to achieve full funding the Society must raise $500,000
by the end of July 2007.
To date, we have raised almost $100,000 for the it.H.i.i i ,Ili.I, Fund,
with individual donations and pledges ranging up to $5,000. Several family
foundations have given $5,000 to $10,000 each, and larger foundations have
made contributions of up to $30,000. As we discuss even larger grants with
several of the nation's leading foundations, their officers always ask, "How
has the Society's membership itself supported this effort?" We're fortunate that
we can cite the 400 plus recent contributors noted
earlier. The Society's elected leaders have been espe-

all continue to praise, and they well illustrate just how much HSS members
value the Society's 'i.. I. pl,,.
Despite these successes, to match the NEH Challenge Grant the

possible) past contributors will have to maintain their earlier generosity. Even as
many members have contributed, the closer we get to 100 percent participation
the more evidence we can present to potential major donors that the Society and
its members see this campaign as crucial to the future of the field. In addition,
since NEH views pledges as the equivalent of cash donations, and since it expects
us to double the current balance of the .iih ..**.-.i lipl.. ; Fund by the end of July,
we hope that HSS members will consider making a multi-year commitment to
this effort, as others have done. The HSS Executive Office can send gentle pledge
