An observation was made in January 2009 that the materials
used to educate new inductees of Upsilon Xi were sorely in need of
restructuring. The materials were incomplete in some places, and
inaccurate in others. The history section, in particular, was woefully
inadequate. UXAA President Joe Giove and UXAA Vice-President Wayne Slocumb
led the effort to compile an accurate and complete "Book of History" for use in
training new club members. In order to complete this effort, President
Giove formed the "Committee to Update Induction Materials" on November 7, 2009.
The committee was co-chaired by the first and fifth Presidents of Upsilon (Dr. Duran Palmertree
and Mr. Bill Winters). As countless drafts of the book were compiled,
original sources were contacted and interviewed. Information from six of
the original nine members were used to create the history as well as several
other early members. The first version of the book was officially released
on January 21, 2010 and will be periodically updated.
