Early this year I was asked to make some "remarks" at the 100th anniversary of the Berkeley station as President of the SSA. Not knowing exactly what was expected, I decided to do some background research on the history of the Berkeley station as found in papers, letters, and reports to the Bulletin. I found these very informative and some very entertaining. Even though a lot of the information was obviously hearsay and written well after the events, I felt that there was a place for this type of anecdotal "history" in the Bulletin and probably no better place for it than in the Presidential Address.
