Abstract: By the 75th anniversary of The Ohio Academy of Science in 1966, a total of 116 papers had been read at annual meetings on the history of science. Measured by numbers of papers presented, botanists have shown the greatest interest and activity in the historical aspect, while zoologists have been second, with increasing concern by other scientists generally in recent years. With 16 papers presented at a Special Session for the History of Science in 1966, the grand total of 132 papers prepared by 99 authors, fall into 13 categories as follows: biographical studies; history of organizations and institutions; historical development of special fields of science; history of technology, medicine, Ohio natural resources, ethnic groups and social history, plant collections, science education, places of scientific interest, science literature, and scientific instruments; and the history of science in general.
