The New Web Lift was conceived and created late one night by Brian R. Speer -- 18 April 1996.

Additions and modifications were made periodically through August 1996, when the new version first went up. Regular updates have been made since that time, most recently in December 2000.

AGC made a few changes in early December, 1999, including changing the icon from Rex to UCMP and shortening the length of the header frame for easier reading and access to all of its links.
