    This project started as a set of scribbles to aid a failing memory. At BAM’s inaugural conference at Warwick in 1986, Peter Grinyer (St Andrews) presented the early results that we had developed from our ‘Sharpbender’ project. After getting the taste for BAM, I have attended every conference since then. I joined Council in 1995/96 and enjoyed my experiences on the Research Committee and as Chair and President from 2001 to 2006. In particular, I was impressed by the commitment, hard work and great humour of many fine colleagues working for the Academy on a voluntary basis. Some are no longer with us and I have dedicated the history to the memory of two close and dear colleagues of ours in BAM, Tony Beasley and Richard Whipp.
