Early Members

Today, new members are celebrated in the Improbable Blog (where the LFHCfS has it's own category),
and are later collected into galleries organized by the year they joined.
But in the past, their luxuriant flowingness was celebrated in these multi-year galleries.
There are 6 of these early galleries, including this one.

Hildegaard Link, P.E.
Member, Luxurient Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Senior Engineer
Corporate Environmental Health & Safety
Consolidated Edison Company
New York City, NY, USA

"A girl friend of mine suggested I join. It seems cool. I hope there are club-associated activities such as symposiums on superheated steam or the human genome project! My friend always makes fun of me because I don't 'look like a scientist' or for that matter an Engineer so I suppose. I guess this is her way of making nice. After reviewing our truly outstanding company I thought I should try to write something a little more dignified but I get tired of being dignified so I'll say something about my hair. My hair has always had a life of its own. On warm humid days, it takes up the whole sidewalk. It has been remarkable since I was very small, and though I am quite tall, the thing people remember is my hair. My hair always speaks my mood and it is the barely controllable mark of passion in my life."

Because I dyed my hair blond this semester, it had generated some discussions about whether Professors should or should not dye their hair. Therefore, I think I am fully qualified as a member of the club."
