Association for Mexican Cave Studies
The Association for Mexican Cave Studies Newsletter, a predecessor publication to the current AMCS Activities Newsletter, was published regularly during 1965 and 1966 and then sporadically, winding down in 1977. The five volumes have been scanned and turned into searchable PDF files containing 885 pages plus 19 foldout-size maps. There are over 80 cave maps in all. In these volumes are many reports of important early Mexican caving, including the first caver visits to Cuetzalan and Huautla, the discovery and descent of Sótano de las Golondrinas, and explorations in the Sierra de El Abra. Articles on cave geology, biology, and archaeology appear. Each volume contains an index.
