The Alabama Section of the American Chemical Society

History of the Alabama Local Section

The American Chemical Society Council approved the request to form the Alabama Section on March 24, 1913 and made it the fifth local section to be formed in the south. In 1977, M. Virginia Jackson wrote and the Alabama Section published a history of the Alabama Section that covered the time period 1913 - 1977. Although this booklet is out of print, a PDF file of Ms. Jackson's, A History of the Alabama Section of the American Chemical Society, can be accessed.

A copy of the current Bylaws for the Alabama Section is also available on-line.
