I thank Ted Pietsch for his critical review of this chronicle. I thank him also for his devotion to the Gilbert Ichthyological Society and the fine times provided by the Society. Jay Orr answered my numerous inquiries about the Society and helped in many other ways. I thank Morgan Busby and Wayne Palsson for providing information on various activities of the organization. Numerous other Fellows answered my questions about the Society, for which I am grateful. Jay Orr kindly reviewed a draft of the manuscript.

I greatly appreciate the expert assistance of GIS Fellow Erin L. MacDonald (UW) who formatted and posted this history on the GIS website. This work could not have been accomplished without her exceptional creative design talents and the generous time she has devoted to this project.
