The Springbok Indexes

Eddie Bridges found an old Springbok Index done by J.B. Carter that required some refinement. Brian Carter was the Society's Librarian and his file consists of 105 pages of Springbok contents up to 2001 Volume 49 No 1 and is dated 2-7-2006. I have looked thru 2006 journals and there is no mention of this enormous feat of producing a document with some 32,000 words Carter no longer features in the members list, so I assume he is no longer with us? Roy Ross said Brian left the Society around 2006.
The Carter document, in its present form is a start towards a cumulative index to the Springbok provided someone will take it on.
I worked on it and added the missing years.
