Abstract: This reflective if impressionistic survey essay has been quickly penned from the close perspectives of someone who has known all the society's many editors, has served as an earlier solo editor himself and has attended the delivery of perhaps more of its papers than any other person. It is written also from a personal knowledge of the three key shaping intellectual forces for the Journal:(1) the 'New England' formative, community-bonding and adult educational and archive-collecting/using stances of its often forgotten yet shaping, nurturing and long fostering parents;(2) the greater - and, to be honest, often lesser - influence of the many Presidents and Committee members on the final choice/compromise selection of papers to be delivered, and, hopefully, to then be published by the Society; and(3) the changing positions of inputs from the closely related adult and tertiary culture/education, particularly within the 'region' - one both spatial and intellectual - in relation to the Society's (core of) members/readers of the Journal.
