"As always in the past, the Proceedings will be what the Academy membership makes of it. It is up to the members to create the journal they want, by the simple expedient of submitting the type of material they believe to be important, needed, and appropriate for its pages." - Paul Meglitch, 1971. The "new" Proceedings. Proc. Iowa Acad. Sci, 78:1.
