Old minutes now on-line!

Through a collaboration between Randy Attwood, Peter Jedicke, and James Edgar, National Council Minutes from the early years of the Society are now on-line.

In the past few days, Minutes from 1910 to 1934 were placed in the National Web Site to join part of the on-going project where historical archives are being scanned, put through an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) process, proofread, and then saved in both html and PDF format for easy access by all.

The early years were handwritten, so had to be typed out in full, as the OCR system doesn't do well with handwriting. It was a monumental chore and most of it is now complete.

Go to http://www.rasc.ca/council/minutes to view these valuable historical documents - they make very interesting reading!
