About The Cover

In 1947, after 16 years of meetings in the Maryland Chesapeake Bay region, the Gordon Research Conferences moved to Colby Junior College (now Colby-Sawyer College) in New London, New Hampshire. Of the 10 Gordon Conferences that met in the summer of 1947, seven will meet this year. The meetings will take place in California, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and France and are noted with a "50 Years" symbol in the schedule announcement beginning on page 1143 in the print product. Online readers can get information from the Gorden Research Conferences home page. [Photos: Colby-Sawyer College. Photo collage: Tracy Keaton Drew]
