HISTORICAL METALLURGY NOTES. A Compendium of Articles and Book Reviews (2008)
  • Fathi Habashi
The Historical Metallurgy Committee was founded in 1978 to provide a forum for the Metallurgical Society members interested in the history of metallurgy and to promote the recording of Canadian achievement. One of the first initiatives of the Committee was to sponsor a section in the CIM Bulletin entitled Historical Metallurgy Notes. In this section original research on the history of Canadian metallurgical installation, anniversaries of certain metallurgical events, history of chemistry and metallurgy in the great empires, biographies and obituaries of distinguished metallurgists and mining engineers, and book reviews, have been published. In 1989 a compilation of selected articles from the first ten years was published as a book under the title All That Glitters: Readings in Historical Metallurgy. The Historical Metallurgy Committee holds its meeting during the Annual Conference of Metallurgy with a luncheon and an invited speaker. Contacts have been established with many organizations involved in the history of technology and metallurgy. The Compendium covers the list of articles and book reviews so far published.
