The California Meeting of the American Astronomical Society
First Paragraph: | The American Association for the Advancement of Science, the largest scientific organization in the country, which generally holds an annual meeting during Christmas week in some large city in the United States, decided upon calling an extra meeting in or near San Francisco during the time of the Panama-Pacific Exposition. Accordingly on Monday, August 2, 1915, at ten o'clock in the morning, the society was called to order in the Scottish Rite Auditorium, Van Ness Avenue and Sutter Street, San Francisco. There were four short addresses of welcome, by the mayor of the city, the first vice-president of the Exposition, the president of the University of California, and the chancellor of the Stanford University, and one response by an officer of the visiting Association. After this the president of the American Association, W. W. Campbell, the director of the Lick Observatory, delivered his formal address on Science and Civilization.
