Mexican Caving Articles in the NSS News, 1941-2015

Compiled by Bill Mixon

This is a bibliography of material on caves and caving in Mexico from the NSS News since its beginning in 1941. It should include all feature articles a page or more long (bold face type).  The catalog of smaller  items is less comprehensive, and many items in the various news-and-notes type columns that made up much of the issues, especially in the ealier years, no doubt escaped my hasty scanning of the more than eighteen thousand pages through 2014 alone. Special "American Caving Accidents" issues of the NSS News, labeled part 2, are not included. Months within a year are generally in alphabetical, rather than chronological, order reflecting the file names of the issues on my computer. Members of the National Speleological Society may view or download issues from the NSS web site at Individual items may be requested from the AMCS.
