Abstract

25 years ago The April 1966 Bulletin contained the report on the 46th Annual Business Meeting in Denver on 26 January 1966 including the report of Secretary Alfred K. Blackadar for 1965. The following is an excerpt from his report. The Bulfinch House* The second major phase of the restoration of the Bulfinch House was completed in the fall of 1965 with the help of funds generously given by members and friends of the Society. These funds include the Bulfinch House Restoration Fund, the Carl-Gustaf Rossby Memorial Fund, the Howard T. Orville Fund, and the Charles Franklin Brooks Memorial Fund. The second-floor rooms include the oval room, known as the Carl-Gustaf Rossby Memorial Board Room, and the Council met in this room for the first time on October 29. In one of the walls of the oval is a soundproof telephone booth which can be used by Councilors for private consultations with their constituents, while remaining accessible for quorum calls. Also on the second floor is the Charles Franklin Brooks Memorial Library honoring the Founder and first Secretary of the Society and housing the Society's collection of scientific and historical materials. On the mantel of the library sits a Terry "pillar and scroll" clock, which was fashioned into a reliable and beautiful timepiece through the craftsmanship of Vice President Phil Church and donated by him as a memorial to Charles F. Brooks. Through the generosity of many of our members and the skillful management of funds by our Executive Director, the Society is now able to make full use of this beautiful and historic building. It is hoped that members who are visiting Boston will take the opportunity to visit their headquarters, browse among the offices and rooms, and identify themselves with this tangible and historic symbol of their Society and the profession it serves. *Bull.
