The concept of the ISS was developed in 1972 by three Internationally renowned radio logists; Harold G. Jacobson M. D. , Ronald O. Murray M. D. , and Jack Edeiken M. D. Their hard work and dedication allowed their vision to become a reality when the first meeting of the Society was held in 1974. The ISS is an interdisciplinary society dedicated to the learning, understanding, and teaching of musculoskeletal disorders. From the beginning, the Society established itself as a premier society, and its members, all experts in their respective fields, continue to make significant contributions to the field of medicine. The sharing of knowledge and a feeling of camaraderie by the members has made this truly a unique society. The Book of Members is in part a historical compilation of information about the Society. The first edition was compiled by Friedrich W. Heuck, Dr. med. , and spanned the first fifteen years of the Society. Dr. Heuck's contribution to the first edition is immeasurable". In the book, Harold Jacobson M. D. presented his historical perspective of the beginnings of the Society and Dr. Heuck presented information of the years that followed. I have brought that information up to date in this edition, and have added new facts about the Society and its membership. The amount of information about each member of the Society is purposefully less than that which was presented in the first edition, as the Society has grown to 427 members and 20 Honorary members .
