The material in this note was initially presented during a panel discussion at the Centennial Meeting of the Association of American Geographers, held in Philadelphia in March 2003. I wish to thank Mary Lynne Bird, executive director of the American Geographical Society, for inviting me to offer my personal reminiscences of my days at the AGS during the mid-1960s. I also wish to thank my fellow panelists for their insights (Hart 2004). My memories of life at Audubon Terrace have benefited particularly from comments by other former AGS employees whom I count as friends as well as colleagues: Miklos Pinther, David Lowenthal, Mary Alice Lamberty Lowenthal, Lynn Mullins, Michael Woldenberg, Charles Morrison, and Robert Dickson. I also wish to acknowledge Dorothy Weitz Drummond, who wrote about her recollections of working at the AGS during the early 19505 in Ubique, the Society's newsletter (2001). Mary Flad remains my wonderful primary source for memories of 153rd Street and of Audubon Terrace.
