The Fortieth Convention

PLAYING HOST to the Society on the fortieth anniversary of the first A. E. S. Convention—fittingly—is the city whose historical significance in the affairs of this country and of the Society is unmatched.

The seedling of a flourishing Society tree was first evident in the formation, in Philadelphia, of the first branch of the National Association of Electroplaters. This group was destined to reorganization only four years later as the A. E. S. Based, in part, on its early motto—”an educational society”—it enjoyed a steady growth, weathered the economic storm of the early 30’s and developed into the present group of 48 branches. In those early years, the Society’s Annual Conventions were highlighted by the presentation of technical papers in educational sessions. The value of those papers in the industry at that time is quite evident from a reading of the post-presentation discussions as published in the MONTHLY REVIEW and Proceedings.

Members of the 1953 Convention Committee followed, as did previous groups, a time-proven pattern by the selection of topics of current interest for the technical sessions. Reproduced in this issue is the full program of events, containing a section on Abstracts of Convention Papers. A glance through those abstracts certifies their outstanding technical value. Accordingly, the alert is sounded for those whose livelihood stems from the field of industry to which the A. E. S. is devoted—”Plan on being one of those registered at the Society’s Fortieth Convention.”
