Augustan News Page
The purpose of this page is to share news of the Society and its members. Submissions may be sent to the Webmaster for inclusion. Older items will be deleted to make room for new.
- The new web site has gone live. Things are organized differently, and most pages have simply been copied from the old site. However, you'll already find a few new things, some things refreshed, with many more planned for the coming months. Volunteers to help would (as ever) be welcomed.
- Capitulo Noble de Fernando VI was recognized as a Nobiliary Bodies, Noble Corporations, and Chivalric Confraternities of Knights.
- Robert Reeves Turbyfill Jr. was recognized as a Knight Commander (KC*HS) in the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.
- Nicholas Hoffmann, FAS, was appointed Assistant Augustæum Editor. He will be responsible for printing and distribution when Augustæum Editor Bruce Metcalf is away.
- Nicholas Hoffmann, FAS, was appointed Editor of The Augustan Omnibus for issue #136. He will be responsible for editing, printing, and distribution of this issue.
- Headquarters closed until 23 January 2022 due to staff travels. The Society can still be reached by email or phone, but mail cannot be received until staff's return.
- Aaron Harburg was admitted to the Society upon the recommendation of Luke DeWeese.
- Phillip Campbell III was admitted to the Society upon the recommendation of Luke DeWeese.
- Brady Brim-DeForest, Baron of Balvaird, FAS, and Edward “Pat” Lowinger, FAS, were promoted to Fellows, Fourth Class, in recognition of their contributions to the Society.
- Library cataloging has reached a milestone this month with 6000 items cataloged, or about 20% of the collection. No small task given the small number of volunteers available.
- Luke DeWeese was named Omnibus Assistant Editor by the Omnibus Editor.
- The Library has been moved to a single room in the storage facility, consolidating material from three different units and the Librarian's home. This should greatly speed the process of cataloging, and make it far easier for visiting researchers to be provided the resources they need for their studies. Unfortunately, while more convenient for processing, there is still not enough space to shelve all of the books. They are being boxed for storage, but remain available on request.
