In 1910, a group of West Coast scientific societies came together to form the Pacific Association of Scientific Societies
(PASS). Twenty-one organizations, mostly regional sections of national societies, became affiliates of this fledgling umbrella
organization. In late 1912, in preparation for the 1915 annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of
Science (AAAS), scheduled to be held in San Francisco, AAAS established the Pacific Coast Committee of AAAS to handle logistics
and program planning.
