Iowa Academy of Science




IAS's first Publication

The newspaper clipping to the right was published in the Daily Iowa State Register on Thursday, January 26th, 1876. The article was written by charter member Gustavus Hinrichs and presented at the 'first semi-annual meeting' of the Iowa Academy of Science on January 25th. It is the first public reporting of scientific research presented at an Academy meeting.

Other articles of the day include political commentary, a story about P. T. Barnum reluctantly selling a tiger at auction and a humorous antidote about two Wisconsin girls outwitting a bachelor.
