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.

Despite untold hours of tricking lizards into doing pushups, and then watching tape of them doing it, I find myself asking people if they want to add batteries to the purchase they are making. Perhaps membership in another august professional society will be just the spice my publication free CV needs to get me a teaching job."

Member, Luxurient Flowing Hair Club for Scientists
Associate Lecturer
Department of Plant Sciences
University of Wyoming
Laramie, Wyoming, USA
<more about this member>

"Emily Smith insisted that I apply for membership. I discovered 'hair' to be one of the greatest teaching tools ever invented for breaking stereotypes and unfounded perceptions. Students don't know me the first day of class, but make assumptions based on the length of my hair. Later, they discover their assumptions were wrong, at which point I have a chance to break other prejudices, misperceptions or limitations to their thinking and learning about sustainable agriculture and agricultural ecology. When my hair falls out, I will have to retire and quit teaching."
