THE Southern California Science Association was 
organized at Los Angeles in the year 1891 for the 
purpose of promoting an interest in general science, 
and of investigating the natural history and pheno- 
mena of this region of the globe. 

The first President, Dr. M. H. Alter, said in his 
opening address: 

"Science is true knowledge so classified as to be readily 
available. Our position on this globe presents certain differ- 
ences from the balance of the world that we should lake into 
consideration. If this is done in an earnest and accurate 
manner, the records of this society will be factors in the 
advancement of the fund of the scientific knowledge of the 
world " 

Dr. A. Davidson was President of the Association 
during the next two years, and under his intelligent 
management the membership greatly increased. 

Mrs. Mary E. Hart was the efficient Secretary during 
the first two years, and took an active part in organiz- 
ing and promoting the interests of the Society, 

Mr. Wm. Lundberg has been the faithful Treasurer, 
and Col. E. W. Jones a valuable member of the Exe- 
cutive Board from the founding of the Society. 

Meetings are held on the second Tuesday evenings 
of each month, at which papers on scientific subjects

UNIVERSITY J 



of local or general interest are read. These are fol- 
lowed by comments and discussions in which all are 
privileged to participate. 

The Association has been favored with papers on 
Entomology by Dr. Davidson, Prof. Coquellet, Mr. 
Griffith and Mr. Wilson; on Meteorology by Mr. 
Spalding; on Electricity by Mr. Ivundberg; on Con- 
chology by Mrs. Williamson; on Astronomy by Dr. 
Bush and Mr. Knight; on Botany by Miss Merritt 
and Prof. McClatchie ; on Ornithology by Capt. 
Merry ; on Topographic Charts by Mr. Davis ; on 
Geology by Major Powell, Dr. Reid and Mr. Yale ; 
and on Petroleum by Judge Minor. 

In June, 1892, and again in June, 1893, public 
receptions were given at which interesting exhibits of 
shells, minerals, plants, insects and microscopical 
slides were made, drawn from the wealth of private 
collections in this vicinity. 

The Lecture Course for 1894-5 will open on Tuesday 
evening, September 10, 1894. Able papers have been 
secured for the course, and due announcement will be 
made to members of the Association.
