Historical/Biographical Sketch

The Toledo Section of the American Chemical Society exists to advance the science of chemistry; to serve and represent the community in matters pertaining to chemistry; to promote professional relationships among its members; and to promote the interests of the Society.

In 1916, Thomas E. Moore, Guy E. Van Sickle, and Dr. H.P. Krieder met in the basement of Toledo University, located then at Illinois and Eleventh Streets. The group discusses plans to create a local organization of the American Chemical Society. The first meeting was held at the Commerce Club, March 26th, 1917, where 24 charter members signed a petition requesting recognition as a local section. The charter was granted by the ACS Council at its annual meeting in Kansas City, Kansas, April 10, 1917. The council designated the Toledo Section to encompass the counties of Lucas, Wood, Ottawa, Sandusky, Fulton, Seneca, and Henry, with the headquarters at Toledo.

Since its establishment, the Toledo Section has continues its program of holding monthly meetings, which include dinner and a guest lecturer, plant trips, participation in national conferences and activities, and join cooperation with other technical societies in holding joint meetings. The Toledo Section has also been involved in programs for the public which include: aiding high school chemistry departments in securing speakers, taking a census of chemists in the Toledo territory, sponsoring the improvement of the technology department of the Toledo-Lucas Country Public Library, and cooperating with the national committee for the prevention of waste.
