Manager's Report



Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies organization, FARMS manager, FARMS fundraising


The first Newsletter announced the ambitious goal of raising $20,000 by June 30, 1981. For practical purposes that goal has been reached, culminated by recent donations of an IBM typewriter and a small computer system . The computer, a TRS-80 system with 48K capacity, includes CPU, expansion interface, monitor, two disc drives, printer and custom desk. It was the gift of Terry Jeffers, a director in the Howard Ruff organization. FARMS will use it to keep the mailing list straight -- now grown to over a thousand names -- and for indexing papers, notes, bibliographies and research projects.
