Dr. Perreault has worked in geophysics and global positioning systems for over 20 years. He earned his Ph.D. in geophysics at the University of Alaska studying solar and ionospheric disturbances. He continued this work under the aegis of SRI, using the Incoherent Scatter Radar Facility in Chatanika, Alaska.
Paul began to work with GPS at Stanford Telecomm, and continued at Lockheed Missiles and Space, where he pursued GPS navigation and timing applications for the NASA Hubble Space Telescope. He initiated a corporate relationship with UCAR's University NAVSTAR Consortium in Boulder, CO (UNAVCO), which led to the sales of thousands of highly accurate GPS receivers for geophysics research. In 1985 he joined Trimble Navigation's Surveying and Mapping Division, where he provided high-level technical marketing and support in the early emerging GPS market.
As a private pilot, Paul has flown from California to Maine, down the Baja and up to Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk, NWT. After climbing Mt. Whitney, he stayed overnight to photograph the dawn.

Finding a home and a haven for your photographic archives is a challenge all photographers face at some point in our lives. Just as important, what measures should you take at any point in your career to guarantee that your images will be around long after you have gone to the great photographic seminar in the sky?
Mort Beebe, Wayne Miller, Joe Munroe, Jon Brenneis, Ernest Braun, Paul Karlstrom of the Smithsonian, Jackvan Euw of the Bancroft Library and Peter Bunnell, Curator of Photography at the Art Museum of Princeton University will present some of their images and talk about those issues. Some of the topics covered will include current and future technologies, living trusts, what institutions might be selected, and why and how to archive your images. Also, ASMP will honor Ruth Bernhard on her 95th birthday.
The auditorium will open at 6 PM with the program starting promptly at 6:30 PM and ending at 8:30. Parking is available in the Oakland Museum of California garage. Reservations are requested as space is limited, please call (510) 238-3005 for reserved seating.
Tickets: Members of the Museum and ASMP members $5.00. Others $7.50.
At 5:00 PM the American Research Center in Egypt (Southern California Branch) has invited the Explorers Club chapters to join them for dinner and a lecture to be given by Dr. Leskov.

The purpose of the Project P-MAN was to search for and document crash sites of US airplanes shot down by Japanese military forces over Palau during WWII. The team found, both on land and in the ocean, 4 planes (2 F4U Corsairs (US Marines), 1 TBF Avenger (US Navy) and 1 Japanese Jake seaplane). While scuba diving, we incidentally found two sunken Japanese boats from that era as well. To date one of the F4U Corsairs has been identified; the other two US aircraft are in progress of being identified. While the team was not successful in finding other wrecks that were included in the original plan, through a combination of physical exploration and interviewing of Palauan locals during this expedition, we are closer on finding those as well. Click here to see the details of this project.
I should also be grateful if you would also pass on our website address to all of your Chapter members who may wish to know about the British Chapter's Millennium Awards for Exploration dinner to be held on 9 November in London.
With best personal regards, Barry Moss, Chairman, British Chapter

Many of you have new stories to be told, and all of us will enjoy hearing them. If you have had a project that you believe suitable as the topic of one of our evening programs, please contact Lesley Ewing, our Vice Chair and program scheduler.
We are especially interested in reaching potential members in the Northern California and Eastern Nevada area who may be unaware of The Explorers Club and our activities. You are encouraged to invite guests to any of our programs, and we will gladly add prospective members to our mailing list for a reasonable period of time. If you know of someone who deserves a special invitation from our Chapter who should become an Explorers Club member or program speaker, pass the relevant information to me and I will personally follow up.
Because of the general success of our Friday evening dinner and program format, we will continue this as our basic format. However, we will continue to try new meeting formats and locations. Suggestions are always welcome.
Your Executive Committee is in the early stages of planning for a "Golden GateAway" in October of 2001. This activity will take a lot of work from a large group of volunteers and recruits. We particularly welcome your comments and help as the planning begins. At this stage we are open to suggestions for principal speakers, venues, formats, and names of possible co-sponsors and potential corporate sponsors.
This is your organization. We welcome and need your active participation.
