Mineralogical Society of America, Founded December 30, 1919

MSA Communications with members

From its founding in 1919, and until 1984, The Mineralogical Society of America (MSA) communicated with its member largely by way of the annual Proceedings and officer reports printed in The American Mineralogist, as well as by occasion notices in the journal or sent by mail. The Proceedings last appeared for the 1992 in The American Mineralogist, volume 78 (1993).

Beginning in 1973, MSA began a regular (President's) Newsletter series for communication between MSA officers and members. These were simple, stencil duplicated or mimeographed 8.5 x 11 inch sheets mailed to members 1-3 times a year. Starting in 1985, these Newsletters were replaced by a typeset and printed newsletter called The Lattice. The Lattice was published quarterly (February, May, August, November). It was initially distributed in print form, but joined by an electronic version in 1996. The last Lattice was the August/November 2004 issue. Communications with MSA members now are both by the MSA Society News portion of Elements magazine, with the first issue being February 2005, and by the electronic-only MSA-Announce list serve to all members that coincide with the appearance of each new issue of the The American Mineralogist.
