The Panama Historical Society after John Carlson
This is an unofficial call. If anything contradictory comes from the surviving Panama Historical Society officer, it will be passed along.
John Carlson, who more or less ran the Panama Historical Society as a one-man show with the crucial support of a large and varied cast of contributors, has died. Due to Carlson's injury the society, which generally met every month on the first Wednesday of the month at Niko's in Balboa, has not met since July.
Whether or not it's an "official" Panama Historical Society meeting, members and friends of the organization should gather at the usual time and place, on Wednesday, October 1, 2008 at the Niko's restaurant in Balboa at 7:30 p.m., so that we can meet one another, appreciate what has gone before and carry on into the future.
Carry on the Panama Historical Society tradition
