I was about to correct that statement about the printing of all the MapHist messages in the early years of this discussion list and see that Peter van der Krogt, the genius and generous man behind those printings, has already done so. Nonetheless, David Cobb and I were richly rewarded for our involvement with MapHist and both have been able to purchase farms and retire in extraordinary comfort (David as a "gentleman farmer," me as just an ordinary farmer). Given that I posted the very first message on MapHist (on 7 March 1994) when David got it up and running at Harvard University, maybe this one from me will also be the last on the list.... See you next at the MapHist Forum: http://www.maphist.nl/forum My thanks to all who posted messages during these almost 18 years. Historians of cartography are an unusually friendly and helpful group of people.

Thus the complete MapHist archives 1994-2012 will be on line soon. It will be announced on the forum. Peter At 16:18 10-1-2012, David Cobb wrote:
Times change Bill - that's why Ed and I are both "gentlemen farmers" now! On Jan 10, 2012 10:07 AM, Bill Barrow wrote: Goodbye MapHist. Thanks for years of good information and community! I will see how Facebook works for some, but I still worry
about long-term retrieval. Remember when MapHist (Ed? David?) published indexed print archives of all the posts for the year?
