I would like to express the Society's thanks to Malcolm Brown, who served as Chairman of the Publications Committee for seven years. He presided over the selection of papers for publication and the production of the last four volumes of ]emish Histon.cal Studies, giving the Editor continuous moral support and sound advice. This year he has been elected President of this Society and Edgar Samuel has succeeded him. I am particularly grateful, once again, to Cyril Drukker, for helping with his usual meticulousness to proofread this volume.

We regret to report the deaths of the following Vice-Presidents since the publica- tion of our last volume: The Very Reverend Haham Dr Solomon Gaon, Rabbi Dr Hugo Gryn, Robert Nunes Carvalho, Walter Schwab and Mrs Dorothy Stone and of AlexJacob, who was a Council Member.
Haham Dr Solomon Gaon and Rabbi Dr Hugo Gryn were important com- munal leaders, whose lives have been described in the obituaries in the Jemish Chronicle and the national press. AlexJacob wrote articles on The]ems of Fa|mouth and especially on his mother's family for Transaaions. Walter Schwab served for some years as our Editor of Publications and after retiring from that office con- tinued to index volumes of]euish Historical Studies, including the important index to Transactions I-XXV. Robert Nunes Carvalho served as President in 1971 -3. The present volume is dedicated to the memory of Dorothy Stone, who succeeded her late husband Hyman Stone as Honorary Treasurer, served as President and was a benefactor of our Society.
