Abstract

There has been some confusion concerning the numbering of annual meetings of the association. Although 1991-92 was the 57th year of the APCG, the 1992 meeting in Bellingham was only the association's 55th. Archival materials reveal that the first meeting of the association was held at UCLA, June 26-27,1935. Dr. Otis W. Freeman of Cheney Normal School (now Eastern Washington University), who arranged the meeting, was elected the first president. Meetings were held annually through 1942. The 1943 meeting, which was to have been held in Corvallis, was cancelled due to World War n, as were the meetings for 1944 and 1945. Fifty-seven geographers, including the incumbent president, have served as presidents of the association. Dr. Eliot Mears of Stanford University served as president from 1942 until his death early in 1946. Dr. John Appleton, then serving at the State Department, moved from vice-presidency to presidency. The regional distribution of the presidents will likely be of interest to many members. Eight presidents were--at the time of their presidencies--members of the Geography Department at UCLA. Three universities-- Berkeley, Oregon, and Washington--each have provided four presidents, while two others--Chico and San Jose--each have provided three. Seven universities have been the
