Our free newsletter reports on work in the history of physics (and allied fields such as astronomy and geophysics), carried out at the American Institute of Physics and elsewhere. Its goal is to bring resources and current topics in the history of the physical sciences to scientists, historians, and all interested audiences. Every issue includes spotlights on archival collections, news from researchers, reports on papers deposited in archives worldwide, and more.
