The 2012 Frederick Ivor-Campbell 19th Century Base Ball Conference will be held on Friday afternoon, April 20, and all day Saturday, April 21, at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York. There will be optional gatherings scheduled for both Friday and Saturday evenings.
As in past years, the conference will cover a wide range of 19th-century baseball topics and will be open to all SABR members and up to one nonmember guest.
Please, save these dates and watch both the upcoming fall and winter issues of the Nineteenth Century Research Committee newsletter, “Nineteenth Century Notes”, for additional information and details.
Among a variety of activities, there will be six 20- to 25-minute research presentations that will be selected between mid-January to mid-February. Anyone interested in making a research presentation on any 19th-century baseball topic should mail or e-mail a 150-word presentation prospectus to Peter Mancuso, 6970 Ely Road, New Hope, PA 18938; or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by January 15, 2012. Please include complete return contact information. A jury of three committee members will score each propectus, with the top six scores selected for this upcoming conference. Those accepted will be notified by mid-February. Previous unselected prospectuses may be re-submitted.
Enjoy the remainder of the baseball season and save the dates April 20-21, 2012, for the conference.
