1. Notes from the Editor|
Randall Smith, HEAD Secretary
The HEAD Executive Committee has been busy over the past year working on a new revision to the bylaws that would allow for affiliate membership in HEAD, so that scientists who are members of other societies such as AGU or APS could join HEAD without being a full AAS member. This would bring HEAD into alignment with the other AAS Divisions and potentially increase HEAD membership. We are also now deep into planning for the April HEAD meeting, to be held in Monterey, CA -- we hope to see you there!
A quick primer on upcoming HEAD events at the January 2013 Long Beach AAS Meeting. All sessions are at the Long Beach Convention Center except for the HEAD Business Meeting on Tuesday night, which will be held in in Ballroom D of the Downtown Hyatt Long Beach.

In the 50 years since the 1962 discovery of the first extrasolar x-ray source, the field of x-ray astronomy has grown from a few unidentified sources to a full-fledged branch of celestial astronomy. This session brings together 19 researchers from the early decades who will share with each other and the audience highlights of their experiences in an informal setting. The session will consist of three panels, and will be videotaped for the historical record. Each panelist will make a brief statement after which the panelists will engage in free discussion.
