The chairman of the committee, the secretary, and the eight
directors listed in the lower left-hand margin of the first
page of this newsletter were elected to three-year terms from
January 1988 through December 1990.
The annual meeting of the ACHSWW was held in 1987 in conjunc­
tion with that of the American Historical Association at the
Sheraton Washington Hotel, 2660 Woodley Road, N.W., Washing­
ton, D.C. 20008, 28-30 December 1987.
The Business Meeting
The 1987 business meeting was convened shortly after 5:00
p.m., Monday, 28 December 1987, in the Wisconsin Room of the
Sheraton Washington Hotel, by the committee chairman, Prof.
Arthur L. Funk of the University of Florida. The secretary
and newsletter editor, Prof. Donald S. Detwiler, Southern
Illinois University at Carbondale, gave the treasurer's re­
port, which was unanimously accepted, as was his recommenda­

six years.
An announcement was made regarding the joint session of
the ACHSWW with the AHA, scheduled for Wednesday, 30 Decem­

by the author of a recent study on Chennault and with a con­
tribution, if possible, by Prof. Alvin D. Coox of San Diego
State University, on the Japanese perspective.
(As noted

meanwhile approved the proposed joint session.)
The committee chairman mentioned that the annual meeting
in December 1989 is to be held in San Francisco, and there
was a preliminary discussion of possible approaches in plan­
