"Besides the Papers read at the three meetings heretofore held, the present volume includes an account of the proceedings of the Association of American Geologists and Naturalists, from its origin. It affords, therefore, a view not merely of the past labors of the Association, but of its plan and objects, which, it will be observed, differ essentially from those proposed by the other scientific societies of this country." From the website of the Scholarly Societies Project sponsored by the University of Waterloo Library : "The Association of American Geologists was founded in 1840, and in 1842, it became the Association of American Geologists and Naturalists. The Association ceased to exist on 1848, September 20, when its members convened to resolve their society into a new organization: the American Association for the Advancement of Science "
