ToTM is short for the "Talk of the Month." It was started as a monthly printed journal for the many students of E.J. Gold. Since these students were scattered across the globe these published monthly talks were a great way to stay in touch with E.J.'s Work. Can anyone say pre-internet :)
Before the internet the only option other than being there was to receive these transcribed and edited talks through the mail.
And that we did from 1983 through 1991.
