About the early days:

 

“My recollection (subject to a high error rate!) is that HEJC was formed by Kurt House, Jeff Bielicki, and myself in 2005.  The three of us shared the big office in HUCE starting in May of 2005. Kurt took the lead and would rightfully be referred to as the first president, and funding was provided by Kurt's advisor, Dan Schrag.  From what I recall, we were quickly joined in our efforts by Ernst, followed shortly by Alex J, Jacob K, and others. If there was any HEJC-type thing in existence before 2005, I certainly did not know about it.  My recollection is that Kurt named it HEJC.” - David Romps

 

“In the years of HEJC - which had a profound impact on me in only positive ways - I recall it mostly as reading papers right before showing up, and then diving straight into the reading material during the meeting by asking Jacob to explain figure 3 :-) We came up with topics of interest as a group, and divvied up which person or persons should rake together papers on them, and that was about it. Generous support from Dan Schrag and HUCE for the pizza and access to interesting Energy-related speakers!” - Ernst van Nierop

 

“For a while there it was a small, sad group of forgotten souls… we didn't even have pizza. For what it's worth, I also second Ernst on it not really being super organized. Felt grass roots to me. Don't recall any real kind of "president" activities, other than just making sure we had papers, pizza, and presenters to take lead on a paper or topic.” - Jason Rugolo
