Correspondence regarding the members and activities of the Société des amis d'André-Marie Ampère.
The Society of Friends of André-Marie Ampère was founded June 12, 1930, on the initiative of Paul Janet, Academy of Sciences, Director of the Graduate School of Electricity. Its purpose is to perpetuate the memory of André-Marie Ampère by any means it deems appropriate, including conferences, publications, and scholarships. Its head office is in Poleymieux (Rhone). Bern Dibner was a member of the society. Ampère was a French physicist and mathematician who is generally regarded as one of the main founders of the science of classical electromagnetism, which he referred to as "electrodynamics." The SI unit of measurement of electric current, the ampere, is named after him.
