History of the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics

The International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics, a non-governmental scientific organization dedicated to the promotion and coordination of physical, chemical and mathematical studies of the Earth and its environment in space, was established in July 1919, during a meeting of the then International Council of Research (now the International Council of Scientific Unions, or ICSU) in Brussels. Thirteen countries requested membership in the original Union, which consisted of the five "sections" of Geodesy, Magnetism and Terrestrial Electricity, Meteorology, Oceanography, and Seismology. In 1920, financially contributing member countries included Belgium, Canada, France, Greece, Japan, Monaco, Portugal, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Italy and Mexico became members of the Union in 1921. In 2000, the Union included 76 member countries from six continents.

The first General Assembly of the IUGG was held in May 1922, in Rome. At the first General Assembly, the sections of Hydrology and Volcanology were added to the Union. In 1933 at the fourth General Assembly in Lisbon, the seven sections were officially designated to be semi- autonomous Associations, each with its own separate but related discipline or subject. The seven Associations of the IUGG are: the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO), the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), and the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). Since 1963, General Assemblies have been held every four years. In addition, the IUGG sponsors Inter-Association Commissions, symposia and workshops, and interdisciplinary research programs in support of its dedication to the scientific study of the Earth and the applications of the knowledge gained by study to the needs of society. The Union is a member of the ICSU, a co-sponsor of the Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical Data Analysis Services (FAGS), and cooperates with UNESCO in the study of natural catastrophes.

The IUGG is administered by a Bureau that consists of the Union's President, Vice-President, Secretary General, Treasurer, and four elected members. The Executive Committee (which includes the Bureau, the retiring President of the Union, and the Presidents of each Association) is responsible for overseeing the Union's scientific programs. The Union published the IUGG Chronicle from 1952 1995. The official languages of the Union are French and English.

Series Descriptions

Series I: Historical and Organizational Documents, 1922-98, n.d.

Four folders, approximately two linear inches, of documents including informal histories of the IUGG, statutes and by-laws, and lists of member countries and officers. Included among the historical documents are a set of questionnaires from the ICSU, and information regarding the IUGG symbol. One folder of printed materials includes English, French, and Spanish language copies of an undated informational brochure.

Series II: Bureau and Administration, 1955-98

Bureau meeting minutes, 1964-96, records of the IUGG Presidents, Vice-Presidents, Treasurers, Secretary Generals, and other Bureau members, as well as the Executive Committee, Finance Committee, Future Structure Committee, and Publications Office, measuring twelve linear feet, are included in this series. Documents are arranged chronologically, except for Treasurer records, which are reverse chronological. President and Vice-President correspondence and reports are not voluminous (1 foot), but Presidents Kaplan, Coulomb, Charnock, Ashour, Keilis-Borok, Moritz, and Wyllie and Vice-Presidents Kisslinger, Wyllie, and Shamir are all represented. Treasurer records (1.5 feet) consist largely of transitory correspondence (in reverse chronological order) with Einar Andersen, and to a lesser degree Soren Gregersen.

The Secretary Generals represented in the collection are Laclavere, Garland, Melchior, and Balmino. Laclavere's records are mostly included in the 26 cloth bound volumes labeled "Chronos" and "CIR." The "Chronos" volumes (1960-63) consist of letters from Laclavere's office, including letters from M. Baker, Benedicte Lesur, and Jaqueline Laclavere. "CIR" volumes (1955-63) include chronologically arranged and numbered copies of circular letters, reports, and meeting minutes. The records in these bound volumes document not only Laclavere's involvement as Secretary General of IUGG, but also his work with the International Committee of Geophysics (CIG), the Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical Data Analysis Services (FAGS), the Comit National Franais de Recherches Antarctiques (CNFRA), the ICSU Review, and the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research (SCAR). The records of Secretary Generals Garland (one inch) and Melchior (four inches) represented here are more general and less numerous because much of their correspondence is spread throughout the rest of the collection within the different series and sub-series subject categories. Secretary General Balmino's correspondence, arranged in reverse chronological order, includes indices for the years 1994-98.

The remaining administrative documents include minutes of the Executive Committee meetings (5 inches, 1965, 1992-95), Finance Committee correspondence and reports (4 inches, 1962-79, reverse chronological order), IUGG grant records (1 inch, 1991-93), the Future Structure Committee (2 inches, 1963-64), and general and transitory records from the publications office (7 inches, 1975-96).

Series III: Member Countries, 1935-89

Member and potential member countries are represented through correspondence and reports (5 feet, arranged in reverse chronological order) originating with a National Committee or related to a country's membership and activities with IUGG. Over 82 different countries are included alphabetically from Algeria to Zambia. The official replacement of member country Taiwan by the People's Republic of China is well documented here, as well as in the Extraordinary General Assembly of 1977 documented in Series VII: General Assemblies.

Series IV: Associations, 1955-97

Correspondence, publications, meeting minutes, reports, printed material, and some photographs (5 feet) produced by or concerning each of the seven semi-autonomous Associations. The seven Associations are: the International Association of Geodesy (IAG), the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA), the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS), the International Association for the Physical Sciences of the Ocean (IAPSO), the International Association of Seismology and Physics of the Earth's Interior (IASPEI), and the International Association of Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth's Interior (IAVCEI). Following the original order developed by the IUGG General Secretary, each Association serves as a sub-series, but they are more effectively subject categories rather than administrative units. Correspondence or reports are listed not strictly as originating with a certain Association, but rather as related to the activities or discipline of the Association, for example, and a letter from the General Secretary to the President of the IAPSO may be included in the IAG sub-series. Associations are listed alphabetically, and records are arranged chronologically.

Series V: Interdisciplinary Research Programs, 1957-96

Correspondence, publications, meeting minutes, reports, and printed material (2 feet) concerning each of a number of research programs that cross the administrative lines of the seven IUGG Associations. The seven research programs represented are the Arctic Inter-Association Committee, the Committee on Geophysical Bibliography, the Inter-Associations Committee on Mathematical Geophysics, the Inter-Associations Committee on the Study of the Deep Interior of the Earth, the Standard Earth Model Committee, the Tsunami Commission, and the Upper Mantle Committee. Similar to the Series IV Association series records, each sub-series does not strictly represent an administrative unit, but rather a subject category. Documents may originate anywhere, but are included if they are related to the activities or discipline of a research program. They are arranged chronologically.

Series VI: ICSU, 1951-99

Correspondence, publications, reports, and financial documents (8 feet), relating to the International Council of Scientific Unions, its administration and member organizations. General records include historical documents, correspondence, financial and grant reports, and records of the ICSU Abstracting Board and Assemblies. The records in the other sub-series reflect the activities and disciplines particular to the various Inter-Union Commissions, Scientific and Special Committees, International Scientific Union Members, Joint Programs, and the Federation of Astronomical and Geophysical Data Analysis Services (FAGS). Each organization is listed alphabetically in its sub-series, and records are arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series VII: United Nations and Other Organizations, 1954-96

This series contains correspondence, publications, reports, and printed material (2 feet) related to the activities of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization and other international organizations. UNESCO records (1.5 feet) include contract documents, subventions, liaison officer, program documents, and the United Nations' International Decade for Natural Disaster Reduction. Other organizations represented include the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), the Pacific Science Association (PSA), the Pan American Institute of Geography and History (PAIGH), and the Pan Indian Ocean Science Association (PIOSA). Records are arranged in reverse chronological order.

Series VIII: General Assemblies, 1939-99

The Proceedings (Comptes Rendus), Circulars, Agendas, Programs, Abstracts, reports, and participant lists are all included in the records (5.25 feet) of the 7th and 10th through 22nd IUGG General Assemblies, including the Extraordinary General Assembly held in Durham, England, in 1977. Correspondence and other organizing documents are also included for some of the Assemblies. Arranged chronologically.

Series IX: Symposia, 1963-66

Correspondence and reports (6 inches) concerning IUGG and related symposia scheduled between 1964 and 1966. Reverse chronological order.

Series X: Publications, 1953-2003

IUGG publications include cloth bound copies of the IUGG Chronicle, 1953-92, IUGG Yearbooks for the years 1989, 1997-2003, and IUGG Union Lectures for 1992. Various single publications (1 inch) of other organizations, including the International Council for Scientific and Technical Informations, the Deutsch Geodatische Kommission, and the National Academy of Sciences are also included.
