Here is Tim's "From the Editor" message:
Welcome to the 1940's edition of The SLOCGS Bulletin. In honor of the release of the 1940 census images, most of the articles included are in some way related to the 1940's. I certainly enjoyed reading all the stories you will find here and I hope you do too. On a related note, our September regular meeting will be a 1940 Census release party. I hope you will consider joining us for the festivities. It should be a lot of fun, with folks in '40s attire and displays of photos and anything else from that era that anyone would like to show off. Keep an eye on the SLOCGS website for updated information about the meeting.
Once again I want to thank all the writers who submitted the stories for this edition of the Bulletin. You make my job both easy and interesting.
