The presently active AES Historical Committee projects [as

are as follows:
and maintain an archive relating to the history of the Audio
- The Japan
Section submitted a History of the Japan Section, in Japanese,
in 2000, with a request to have it translated. We have found volunteers
(Jim Anderson and Kazunori Sugiyama) who have translated about 25 % of
the document, and will be completing it soon. We will put PDF versions
of both the Japanese- and English-language histories on the HC website.
- We need
a volunteer in the New York City area to help project-leader
Roger Furness with organizing and cataloging the history of the AES
8 [Encourage each Local Section and each Convention Committee to organize an appropriate session on the history of audio engineering, or a display on an appropriate historical subject. When requested, provide information to help them to do so.]

Historical Committee's website onto the AES server. Our thanks to the
HC Webmaster Howard Sanner, AES Webmaster Steve Johnson, and John K
Chester for doing the move.
