Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Includes materials documenting the work of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Pacific Division. The materials date from the founding of the organization in 1910 to approximately 2020.

There are also files relating to this history of the organization as well as some photographs and audiovisual materials.
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.
