Historical NoteReturn to Top

The primary activities of the Research Society consisted of meetings at which members gave reports on their research, an annual banquet, an annual business meeting, and participation in the administration of the Agnes H. Anderson Research Fund. Increasing specialization of research and consequent decrease in general interest of the research reports led to declining attendance and, finally, to the demise of the Society in 1962.
