Below is a selection of archived IWSc Newsletters. October 1997 highlighted the Annual Conference, with a very prophetic paper by Charles Hopping. March 1989 marked the first issue. The other issues show the work and role of the IWSc. If you hold copies of IWSc newsletters we would be pleased to hear from you in order to add to our on-line archive. We are indebted to Keith Purcell and Andrew Gibson for the loan of their archives.
