This group is intended to share knowledge of / awareness of, some seldom seen "reprint", or "offprint", articles that originally appeared in the published magazine.
The vast majority of these items were generated by the Society on special request by non-profit organizations, government agencies, and other higher profile entities (authors, significant contributors).
Print runs of each varied widely, from a few dozen to thousands of copies. Some bear the personalization of the author.
