For some time, we have been investigating the possiblity of founding a History of Vertebrate Paleontology workgroup. The main reason for this is to bring about some degree of co-ordination of efforts in this field, and to set up some broader research projects. Also, although many people are active in VP History research, few do so full-time, and it would be worthwile to make an inventory of interested parties. A first step might be to organise an informal get-together around SVP. Therefore, I invite all those that work on or are interested in VP history to send me their names, and, if possible, a list of publications and areas of interest. We may then organise something in october to give the workgroup a more regular character.
