AIME Marks 150th Anniversary

Leadership from the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical, and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), WAAIME (formerly known as the Women’s Auxiliary to the American Institute of Mining Engineers), and its four member societies, Association for Iron & Steel Technology (AIST), Society for Mining, Metallurgy, and Exploration (SME), SPE, and The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS) met at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, to celebrate the organization’s 150 years.

The board and invited guests of the AIME observed its sesquicentennial on 2–4 October with its 150th Annual Meeting, a plaque unveiling on campus, historical talks, and a gala dinner. The final day included regional field trips to Friedensville, Stockton, Wilkes-Barre, and Eckley Miners’ Village.

Lehigh University was the site of AIME’s second-ever meeting (and first technical meeting) on 15 August 1871.

Founded in May 1871, 22 engineers came together to form an association dedicated to advancing the production of metals, minerals, and energy resources through the application of engineering. The founding group’s goals were “the more economical production of useful minerals and metals and ... the greater safety and welfare of those employed in these industries.”

As AIME continued to grow, it decentralized and formed four independently operated member societies: SME, TMS, AIST, and SPE.

SPE became a separately incorporated organization in 1985.
