Biographies and History-Related Articles in MICROBE (formerly ASM News)
In 1935 the Society of American Bacteriologists (now the American Society for Microbiology or ASM) began publishing a newsletter, which was designed to convey to members information of interest about Society affairs. Occasional feature items were also included in the early issues, but it was in 1972 that a decision was made to offer a non-member subscription rate and to make the (now monthly) publication more attractive to non-members by expanding both the feature and book review sections. Since then, ASM News (renamed MICROBE in 2006) has included numerous articles of historical interest. See below for links to recent articles.
