As part of the planning process for the IEEE Control Systems Society's 50th anniversary celebration, a collection of photographs from Society events are assembled. The collection is not intended to have any profound meaning but is simply a way for the members to indulge in their individual and collective memories of past events and people, to impart a sense of where the Society has been and for its future course. This photographic journey by its very nature is visual rather than textual. Each image's caption provides information on the event and date and the individuals in the photograph. This photographic history, eclectic or otherwise, provides an archival snapshot of portions of the Society's past, and illustrates the importance of photography's role in preservation. Perhaps this photographic essay can also serve as a reminder to future volunteers and event organizers to ensure that the future is recorded for the benefit of subsequent generations.
