Historical Note

A professional society of chemists, physicists, mineralogists, and metallurgists, the American Crystallographic Association was formed in 1949 by a merger of the Crystallographic Society of America and the American Society for X-ray and Electron Diffraction. It promotes the study of the arrangement of atoms in matter. It has been affiliated with the American Institute of Physics since 1950, became an Associate Member in 1958, and has been a full Member Society since 1966.

Scope and Contents of Collection

American Crystallographic Association (ACA) and the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) membership directories, brochures, newsletters, pamphlets, meeting programs, and Transactions of the American Crystallographic Association. Also contains unedited ACA Living History autobiographies published in ACA RefleXions complete with photographs, drawings, and references to their work including David Sayre, William R. Busing, Jenny Glusker, Jack Dunitz, Marjorie Senechal, Helen M. Berman, Richard E. Marsh, Connie Rajnak, Abraham Clearfield, David J. Haas, John R. Helliwell, Sidney Abrahams, James M.
