It all started in 1984, when a group of energetic members of the
institute decided to publish the first edition of the IIG-News.
MUPID 2 had already been born, and so there was at last some time
left for writing about other important events.
The first few editions were pretty thin, which made the
despairing editor issue heart-rending appeals for contributions.
The only person to write regularly from the very beginning was
Professor Maurer (obviously the only member of the institute with
enough time on his hands to write articles for this pamphlet!).
