The document confirming my appointment by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands to become "Lector Mathematische Informatica aan de Gemeentelijke Universiteit van Amsterdam" is signed 30 November 1976, now 30 years ago. I accepted the position three months later on Feb 01 1977.

I like to use this sixth lustrum of my appointment to look back into what was happening in Theoretical Computer Science in Amsterdam 30 years ago, how it was embedded into the University and exhibit some of the roots of the ILLC as we know it today.
