I hope soon to have exciting news about books for sale and about the RASKB Library.

As everyone knows, February 19 will be the 150th anniversary of the birth of James Scarth Gale, a founding member of RASKB and who presented the first paper in our history in October 1900.
There will be a special worship service and comemoration at Yeondong Church (which he founded and where he was pastor) on Sunday February 17 at 3pm
There is a newly composed memorial page for him in our RASKB Blog http://www.raskb.com/blog  and his Wikipedia entry has been polished a little, though it could still be improved.

President, RAS Korea
