Below is the text from an article that appeared in this issue.  It describes the history of the AFMS logo that appears on this issue.


    Mary Elizabeth Burwell, 960 Grant, Denver, Colorado, was voted the winner in the national insignia contest sponsored by the American Federation of Mineralogical Societies.  So many excellent drawings were submitted from all parts of the country that the final decision had to be carried over to the meeting of the Delegates at the Milwaukee convention
    Miss Burwell is a member of the Colorado Mineral Society and designer of its emblem. Her latest drawing was judged as best showing the scope and purposes of the Federation.
    The judges were Mrs. Dorothy Craig, California Federation; Mrs. Verah Landon, Northwest Federation; and Chester R. Howard, Rocky Mountain Federation. The Midwest Federation was not represented because it acted as host to the convention. Prof. Richard M. Pearl managed the contest and Herbert F. Grand-Girard handled the publicity.
