ASA members names are printed in bold type
* followed by a name is the Editor's way of saying "thanks!" to the news contributor of that name.
Editorial custom is to omit titles, such as Dr., from names. So many ASAers and others reported in the ASAN have doctorates that too much space is taken in the printed version to include them.
ASAN is used as an abbreviation for the ASA/CSCA Newsletter.
ASAxx (such as ASA99) refers to the ASA Annual Meeting in year 1999. (ASA00, of course, refers to the Meeting of the year 2000 AD.)
