Switzerland, Swiss history, European history
L ooking over the work of our Society over the past 40 years, it becomes quickly evident that Leo Schelbert has shaped it in important ways almost from the beginning of the Society's reactivation in 1963- 65. After contributing an article on Albert Gallatin in 1967, he became deeply involved: as co-editor of the Review with Heinz K. Meier (1970- 1986), as President (1975-1980), as sole editor of the Newsletter/Review (1980-2002), co-editor with H. Dwight Page (2002-2006), as editor of the society's book series (1981-2013), and as member of the editorial board for the book publications since 2013 . During his tenure as editor of the Newsletter he shepherded the publication's transition from the Society's Newsletter to the SAHS Review in 1990, a partly scholarly publication, and he saw to it that the articles in the Review were from then on abstracted in America: History and in Historical Abstracts.
