American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers

The American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME) is a professional body for mining and metallurgy, with 90,000 members. It was founded in 1871 by 22 mining engineers in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States, being one of the first national engineering societies in the country. Its charter is to "advance and disseminate, through the programs of the Member Societies, knowledge of engineering and the arts and sciences involved in the production and use of minerals, metals, energy sources and materials for the benefit of humankind."

Year 1915

Still known by the original name American Institute of Mining Engineers it had a membership at the beginning of 1915 of over 5,000 made up of honorary, elected, and associate members. The annual meeting of the institute was held in February, with other meetings during the year as authorized by the council. The institute published three volumes of "Transactions" annually and a monthly "Bulletin" which appeared on the first of each month. The headquarters of the institute was in the Engineering Building in New York City. []
