After editing the first sixteen issues of On the Waterfront together with Jan Lucassen, Mieke IJzermans has passed on this responsibility in connection with her retirement from the IISH. Jaap Kloosterman will take over from her as of Issue 17.
Mieke, the main source of inspiration and initiator of the Friends of the IISH, will nonetheless remain available to further her creation. Her friends greatly appreciate Mieke’s commitment but feel that thanks are now in order for her major efforts, which have been so fruitful so quickly. From this forum, the Friends of the IISH send Mieke their very best wishes.
Moreover, Bouwe Hijma has once again contributed the section From all nooks and corners (as he did in On the Waterfront 14, 2007, p.3 ). Like his previous one, this one is about a generous donation to an affiliated institute. Lex Heerma van Voss created the English alliterations on page 3 . Kees Rodenburg has written the section about volunteers in the Spanish Civil War.
