Abstract

As indicated in Table I, a preliminary meeting looking toward the organization of an academy of science in Iowa was held in Iowa City in 1875. According to the records three professors and four doctors were present at the meeting. Two of the professors were from Ames and one from Iowa City, while Ames, Iowa City, Davenport and Des Moines were represented by the four medical men. Five other persons, two of whom were in academic work and three in medical practice, stationed at Iowa City, Tabor, Clinton, Davenport and Dubuque, respectively, had previously expressed their approval of the proposed organization, and they, together with the ones previously named were designated as charter members. At the first regular meeting, which was held in Des Moines, articles of incorporation were approved, a proposed constitution was reported, five fellows were elected, and papers were read. At the first annual meeting held in June, 1876, a constitution was adopted, and a program presented.
