Chronicles of the Society of American Bacteriologists 1899-1950

RETURN TO CHOMA HOME PAGE

The American Society for Microbiology was founded in 1899 as the Society of American Bacteriologists (SAB).  In 1934, the Society created the position of Archivist, to which Barnett Cohen of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine was appointed.

SAB’s fiftieth meeting, the Golden Jubilee Meeting, was held in Baltimore in May of 1950.  Cohen researched the archival records he had acquired and prepared Chronicles of the Society of American Bacteriologists 1899-1950, a brief history of the Society, including a photograph of each of the Society’s presidents.  Copies of the volume were provided to each of the attendees at the meeting, courtesy of SAB’s publisher, Williams and Wilkins, and its printer, Waverly Press.
