The founding members of APS left an invaluable legacy. R. James Cook, an APS member for 50 years, spent months researching APS's impressive past. His treatise, "The 100-Year History of APS," is an important contribution to our centennial record and was the main component of the Memorable Milestones booklet given to all attendees of the 2008 Centennial Meeting.
As part of the Centennial Celebration, APS invested in the development of an Oral History in video format with interviews of prominent plant pathologists as well as short perspectives from members on their experiences as a member of APS. Created over a three-year period under the leadership of Darin Eastburn, the Oral History DVD was included in the Memorable Milestones booklet given to all attendees of the 2008 Centennial Meeting and has also all been adapted for online viewing available in the Webcasts section of APSnet.
To mark our Centennial year, the third section of the Memorable Milestones booklet provides detailed listings of the charter and current members of APS, along with a salute to APS awardees and leaders who have served APS during the past 100 years.
