Knowing where one has been is at least as important as knowing where one is headed.  Archives serve as both repositories of information that not only provide foundation knowledge,  so as to prevent the "reinvention of the wheel," but also as histories,  well-springs of memories of good work, worthy activity, and, of course, good friends.
This initial selection of items covers a wide variety of documents related to the many programs of  ICS meetings and associated subjects that I've pulled from my files.  As I retrieve information, I'll add to this section.  I hope you get as much satisfaction from reading the various items as I have in preparing them for the site.

Please note that some of the linked PDF files are quite large and may need some time to download.
If you are using a hand held device to view this website, you may want to bookmark this page
and download the files at a more convenient time.
