Bulletins 1 to 130
Brief history of the
The first issue of what was to become the ACMMI Bulletin was a modest affair appearing in March 1974. It is impossible to know how many editors there were prior to Bulletin 85 (October 1997), when a newly elected editor remained in the post for some nine years. From that time up to Bulletin 130 (August 2005) this editor produced a regular bulletin, some of which were developed electronically.
In October 2005, Peter Phillips took on the editor's task, and still remains in the post. By this time electronic publication was a more developed process, allowing the use of colour.
The club holds a copy of every ACMMI Bulletin ever produced. All bulletins from 131 (October 2005) are in PDF format. All other bulletins are available only as hard copy. However, it is planned to convert some of these into PDF files.
The two indexes on this page cover, in the first instance, the contents of all bulletins up to number 130. Articles are only available as hardcopy unfortunately.
The second index is of Bulletins 131 to 195 (August 2016). These are all available as PDF documents. Restrictions on content have been imposed, however most of the articles can be made available on request.
