Abstract: It is with great pleasure that I provide an editorial to the first issue of Volume 50 of Babel. What an accomplishment for a journal to reach this landmark of 50 years of continuous publication. According to David Ingram, in his recently published personal history of the AFMLTA, in which he draws on Ron Horan’s (1990) article from Babel Volume 25, The beginnings of Babel, the first Babel Volume 1 was published in 1956, as an extension of the previous newsletters generated by MLTAV (Ingram, 2014). The editor of this volume in 1956 was Hilde Burger, and she remained editor for many years afterwards. The AFMLTA became federated in the early 1960s, and all the state language teaching associations took Babel as their official journal from 1962. It recommenced numbering in 1965, with Volume 1, No 1 published in April of that year to reflect the shift to a national journal. Editors of Volume 1, Number 1 were Keith Horwood and A.K Holland (Ingram 2014).
