|The near side: the learned society|
The first time I attended the convocation of a learned society I was deeply impressed by a grave and ceremonious sense of occasion. I conducted myself with a reverential, almost apologetic, attitude. I had no delusions of grandeur about the terms of my admission to student membership in the American Physical Society. You paid the $15 application fee, and you were a member. Still, the congratulatory letter that informed me of my election to that august body set a certain scholastic tone.
