This is the PA-AAAS Issue of Mindfield: The Bulletin of the Parapsychological Association. The major subject in this issue is the historical acceptance in 1969 of the PA as an affiliate of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest scientific association and publisher of Science. Gerd Hövelmann provides a context of this event, followed by the original full report by the person who more than anyone spear-headed this achievement: E. Douglas Dean.  The PA’s Executive Director, Annalisa Ventola, then provides a historical account of the treatment of parapsychological topics in Science up to the PA's affiliation and the reception of the various AAAS meeting symposia to which the PA has contributed. 

In his column, PA President Chris Roe discusses the potential replicability problem in parapsychology. In his first contribution to Mindfield, Michael Tremmel, the PA student representative, offers a valuable annotated bibliography to basic sources on parapsychology and anomalous psychology, geared to various levels of readers’ interest and knowledge. And, as always, Gerd Hövelmann closes the issue with his list of relevant titles in non-specialized journals, preceded by his tribute to the bibliographic contributions of Rhea White.
