This index was begun in the fall of 2007. A prior index was compiled by Mary M. Root that covered issues of Backsights from its inception to 1989. Like Ms. Root´s compilation, this one does not use any individual´s names unless they are a figure in the history of surveying, an inventor or some other prominent person in our profession. Individual member´s names are mentioned only in obituaries or for being honored for some major accomplishment. This is not meant to take anything away from some of the member´s major contributions to the well being of our society or our profession.

The index currently goes into the Fall, 2008 issue. Scanned copies (when completed) displayed on the internet will always be 4 issues behind the current issue. Should a subject or article appear in the index that is covered in one of those issues, they are available through the society. Ordering information can be found at another location within this site. Any omissions, typographic errors or additions can be reported to: C. Barton Crattie, 272 Valentine Drive, Lookout Mountain, Georgia 30750.
