New Matter SUMMER 2024, VOLUME 49, EDITION 2

Letter from the Editor-in-Chief

Editor-in-Chief of New Matter

WELCOME TO THE SUMMER EDITION OF New Matter for 2024. The cover of this edition showcases the first U.S. Patent granted in 1790. Interesting things to note about this patent is how short it is, about a quarter of a page. And for patent attorneys, note it has no claims. Also, note the number is X000001, so it appears they were expecting a lot more. Finally of note, it is signed by then president, George Washington.

As always, we hope the cover art as well as the articles published in New Matter both inform and entertain readers in each issue, including this summer issue.

For this issue, I continue to thank our New Matter editorial staff for accomplishing the work to get this publication to you. In particular, thanks to Amanda Nye who is the Acquisition Editor, Anthony Craig and Leaf Williams who are Co-Production Editors, and Dabney Eastham who is Senior Articles Editor.
