Let me introduce yourself myself as the new editor of the Newsletter Bulletin, the successor of Ken Rea whose contributions to Senior College, which go far beyond the newsletter, are both considerable and distinguished. I am a mathematician who was an undergraduate during the placid fifties and joined the faculty during the more tempestuous sixties.

I am struck by how much our university has changed in so many respects over the last half century, and hope that one of the functions of this Newsletter is to provide a forum in which members of the College can reflect on the changes and what has been gained or lost.

I hope that you will find this Newsletter Bulletin a convenient way to keep up with the many activities of the College and of those who constitute it. Readers are invited to submit their own short articles, announcements and news.
