AESF History
Articles from 50 and 75 years Ago

This exclusive NMFRC feature presents interesting monthly articles culled from past AESF publications printed 50 and 75 years ago in the Society’s publications. Each month one or two articles, announcements, advertisements or letters are selected and reprinted. Many of the articles initially selected from 1949-1950 (at that time, the journal was named Plating) deal with environmental technology and related issues. The selected articles from 1924 (American Electroplaters’ Society Monthly Review) deal mostly with organizational issues which faced the Society at that time. If you are an active AESF member, you will be able to relate to most of discussion carried in these articles.
