The faculty members sponsoring the meeting are Kirtley F. Mather, professor of Geology. Francis O. Matthiessen, associate professor of History and Literature, David W. Prall. professer of Philosophy, George W. Sarton, Lecturer on the History of Science, and Ernest J. Simmons, assistant professor of English.
