Even more sessions!! We’ve updated this post at our new website, to be unveiled next week at #ESA2013. Visit the new post at History lovers guide to ESA 2013 for a peek at the new, improved HRC website.
We’ll be celebrating ESA history again this year, with major displays and demos at our Historical Records/Centennial Committee combined booth. Look for us in the Exhibit Hall. (Location details pending.)
In addition to our booth, several sessions related to ESA history are planned by the HRC Program Subcommittee and others. To learn more about what’s happening, follow us on Twitter: @ESAhistory.
