During a blizzard in Chicago in January 1918, four educators representing professional associations deliberated on how to
best meet the wartime needs of American higher education. Before World War I was over, these four educators were joined by
others and the Emergency Council on Education was created. This fledgling organization, with an annual budget of two thousand
dollars, soon shed its wartime nature and changed its name to the American Council on Education. From 1918, ACE has steadily
increased in size and stature in American higher education.
