 Judith Merril   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
"Science fiction, I suspect, is now dead, and probably died about the time that Judy closed her anthology and left to found her memorial library to the genre in Toronto.
From there she became involved with emergent science fiction, resistance to the war in Vietnam, the Free University movement, and tuning-in and turning-on.
Read the Hugo Award-winning book about her life and learn how early science fiction writers lived, argued, dated, mimeoed their manifestos, learned step by step how to write stories, and (in some cases) how to get paid for them.

 MATERIALS SCIENCE: ON NEW BIOMATERIALS
Yet it is only with the development of synthetic polymer systems in the past few decades that biomaterials have begun to find broad applications in modern medicine (1).
A new wave of advances in cell biology, chemistry, and materials science is enabling the production of a new generation of smart biomaterials.
Modern biomaterials science is characterized by a growing emphasis on identification of specific design parameters that are critical to performance, and by a growing appreciation of the need to integrate biomaterials design with new insights emerging from studies of cell-matrix interactions, cellular signalling processes, and developmental and systems biology.

 C&EN: Chemistry Crystallizes Into Modern Science   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
Chemistry was a well-established science in 1923, with Ph.D.-granting departments at many universities in the U.S. The American Chemical Society, founded in 1876, was a going concern.
As one historian of science has put it, 70 to 80% of what is interesting in chemical science today was not understood to exist in 1923.
The 75 years since 1923 also saw the first synthesis of a class of inorganic materials that have grown to be enormously important in several industries: zeolites.

 Handbook of Texas Online: SOUTHWESTERN SOCIAL SCIENCE ASSOCIATION
The Southwestern Social Science Association, the oldest regional social science association in the United States, was founded as the Southwestern Political Science Association by members of the University of Texas Department of Government in December 1919.
Although a distinct entity in itself, the Southwestern Social Science Association consists of a number of disciplinary regional social science associations, each of which holds annual meetings, elects officers, and conducts business in concert with the larger organization.
The organization's decision-making body is its executive committee, which consists of a president, president-elect, vice president, and other officers elected by its general membership, as well as nine or more representatives elected by the members of the disciplinary associations affiliated with the association.

 Toll-Like Receptors: Possible Route to Controlling Septic Shock?
The mutation and the gene itself were finally identified in what was probably the largest such target yet attempted.
Beutler tells Science Watch that he believes that blocking the TLR-4 receptor will prove an effective approach to treatment, but the question, he says, can only be answered by clinical trials.
But with at least 10 TLRs now identified, all of them believed to participate in microbial sensing, defects in TLRs might collectively be responsible for susceptibility to many forms of infection in humans.

 Wayne State Library and Information Science Program   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The Library and Information Science Program can trace its origins to 1918, when the Detroit Normal Training School began offering courses in school librarianship to elementary teachers in the Detroit Public Schools.
During the 1960s and 1970s, the Library Science Department broadened and diversified its program to include both undergraduate courses and a series of continuing education programs.
Due to growing budgetary concerns, it was necessary to move the Program out of the College of Education in 1984, and it began functioning under the administrative jurisdiction of the Dean of University Libraries.

 Black Oxen (1923)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The novel gained a racy reputation, due to its (for the time) frank discussion of women's sexual organs, and because of some innovative language.
"Black Oxen" (the 1923 novel) is science fiction, although few of its readers realised that fact.
The 1924 film "Black Oxen" is a science-fiction movie, but is not immediately recognisable as such because the film emphasises ideas rather than sci-fi gadgetry.

 UH Press Journals: Pacific Science, vol. 54, no. 3 (2000)
Abstract: The Australian Congress of 1923 was a determining moment for the Pacific Science Association.
In contrast to the Australian meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science, held in 1914, this first postwar Congress signaled the emergence of a new scientific nationalism in Australia and the advent of a new scientific relationship between Australia and its great and powerful friend across the Pacific.
At the same time, the success of the Congress gave the infant Pan-Pacific movement much-needed visibility and support and led directly to the permanent establishment of the Pacific Science Association and to its continuing presence in international scientific affairs.
