History

The Society was established in 1955 by W. Horsley Gantt at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. Early meetings were held in the Baltimore-New York area, but as the membership started to assume an international character, annual meetings were held abroad as well as through the United States. Membership includes physicians, PhDs, clinicians and scientists.  Past presidents are listed below.

A particularly forthright examination of the Society’s history is presented by

Data prior to 2000 from a list in Society archives (provided by Byron Campbell). That list includes only one year for each president. I presume that the year is the year of the meeting over which the person presided. List compiled by W. J. Wilson – Secretary/Treasurer.
