New SVU Biographical Directory
As you were informed previously, a long-awaited SVU Directory was published a few
months ago in Prague. It is a product of Mila and Eva Rechcigl and Jiri Eichler who
have diligently worked on it for years. It is an impressive publication comprised of
some 3000 biographical entries of individual members, listing their addresses,
telephone numbers and e-mails, apart from information on their education,
publications and areas of expertise. Besides alphabetical listing, the directory
also provides a classification of members by subject and by geographical location.
The SVU Directory, which has now reached its 8th edition, has always been the bestseller among SVU publications, and there is every expectation that this will also be true about the current edition. In many respects it represents the cream of the crop of the Czech and Slovak intellectuals and professionals throughout the world and thus it is the best business card SVU has to offer to its members.
Most members who had ordered the Directory earlier and paid for it must have received it by now. Some thirty remaining members who also ordered it will receive their copies as soon as we get additional copies from Prague where the bulk of SVU Directories are kept.
Because of prohibitive transport costs, any new orders will have to be handled individually and the copies sent by postal mail directly from Prague. To recoup some of our production costs it will be necessary to charge additional postage. A total cost for the Directory. including the mailing and handling is $25. Send your orders with your check to SVU Treasurer, F. Mucha, 36 West 88th St., New York, NY. 10024.
