With volume 11, JAPAS now enters its second decade of publication. For those keeping count, Volume 10 included only one issue, for this editor needed a short sabbatical after a decade of leadership. In this issue, we focus on a recent past—the plain people at mid-century (roughly 1930-70)—that is slowly becoming a more distant past. Those experiencing this era are largely aged or have passed on, and in this issue, we spend time reviewing the historical documents, research and data, and autobiographies they have left.
