The ARS and Me...a memoir- Martha Bixler Martha Bixler has been a member of the ARS for a large part of its history. Throughout this time-span she served the society in several leadership roles, including several stints as President. In recognition of her considerable contributions to the ARS, she was given our Distinguished Achievement Award in 1996.
Martha has written a personal memoir of the history of the ARS. It has been pieced together from historical records, letters, photographs and the author's recollections. The manuscript tells a rather inspiring story of a group of dedicated people trying to promote the joys of recorder playing in what began as a barren territory, and succeeding in raising membership to more than 4,000 at its peak. As with many institutions involved in limited niche markets, the struggle to survive was often harrowing, and required extreme efforts by many people, including Martha Bixler.
