ICPSR kicks off 50th anniversary celebration with reception, Web site

ICPSR is proud to kick off the celebration of our 50th anniversary with a reception at the American Sociological Association in Las Vegas on Sunday, and the launch of a Web site recounting the history of the Consortium.

The Web site features a personal history written by former interim Director Erik Austin, who retired in 2006 after 41 years at ICPSR; video interviews with several current and former Consortium leaders; and profiles of current staff members and researchers.

The site also lists upcoming celebratory events, including receptions at various professional meetings, the Official Representatives meeting in October, and a symposium in June 2012 featuring Nobel laureate and former ICPSR Council member Elinor Ostrom.

We hope you enjoy the Web site, and can join us at some of our 50th anniversary celebrations!
