C.A.A.S. Notes At the annual meeting of the Canadian Association for American Studies, held in Montreal in November 1970, the following officers were elected to serve during the new year: Virginia Rock, President; Joseph Gold, Vice-President; Ernest Redekop, Secretary; Fred Matthews, Treasurer.

The proceedings of the 1970 c.A.A.s. conference, organized around the theme of War and Society in North America, are presently being readied for publication by Thomas Nelson and Sons.
