First Issue of Sarawak Historical Society

34 years old
You have to be a history geek to be interested in this issue. The Sarawak Historical Society was launched on Thursday,18th January,1973. It did not produce any journal issue in 1973 because it was busy recruiting members, lacking funds and no suitable articles to be published and not many willing contributors.
This first issue is therefore a collector's item.
But was interested me in this issue is a report of the society's activities, which mentioned that at the time of the issue publication, there was only one life member by the name of H.P. Buxton, from Bintulu at P.O. Box 59.
