Garth H. Foster was a central figure in the development of an APL community outside of IBM. He started the APL Quote Quad, serving as editor of the first volume and distributor until SIGAPL took over publication, and the APL Implementer's Conference, which continues to be held at the Minnowbrook conference center at Syracuse University, where Foster taught. Foster also helped form SIGAPL (initially STAPL), and served as Chairman from 1973 to 1977. He was the second recipient of the Iverson Award, in 1984.
