James A. Poupard, Ph.D.
Eastern PA Branch Archives,
February 16, 2008

The first Branch sponsored symposium was held November 6-7, 1969 at the Holiday Inn on City Line Ave. James Prier was chairman with Jay Satz and Richard Gutekunst serving as co-chairs. It was called the “Northeast Regional Conference on Rubella.” More than 200 people attended this first symposium. The symposium was such a success that it was decided to repeat it each November and over the next several years it became an established tradition to have the Annual Branch Sponsored Symposium each November. As one looks through the Branch Archives the name and number assigned to symposia show several variations, one of the most common designation was the xxth Clinical Microbiology Annual Symposium. The complication of a numbering system started in 1972 with the initiation of the first Branch Sponsored Basic Science Symposium entitled “Virus Tumorigenesis and Immunogenesis”. There have been eight Basic Science Symposia held since 1972. Initially they were held in either April or June but in 1986 it was held in November in place of what had become known as the Annual Clinical Microbiology Symposium, which was not held that year. Also in 1994, another year without a November symposium, a Basic Science Symposium was held in December. Therefore, of the 43 Branch Sponsored Symposia, there are eight Basic Science Symposia and 35 Clinical Microbiology November Symposia. It should be noted that in several of the Branch sponsored November Symposia there was considerable effort to combine Basic Science and Clinical Microbiology topics. The only year since 1969 without a November Symposium (except for the one in December) was 1981. In 1981, after several planning meetings, it was determined that the caliber of speakers needed to present on the chosen topic were not available and the difficult decision was made to cancel the meeting for that year. I thought it was important to note the issue of numbering systems because I know that there are books and brochures collected by various symposium committee members who, after reviewing the attached list, will try to figure out why their special symposium is listed as the 12th or 22nd when these numbers may not match those on the list that follows. It should also be noted work on many of the symposia did not end with the close of the meeting. Our Branch Sponsored Symposia resulted in many published books of the proceedings.

The Branch Archives contain a collection of material from each of these symposia (except for one Basic Science symposium), with some variation of the amount of material collected each year. I would like to present a review of some of the people involved with the symposia and bring attention to the number of published books that this series has produced. Some interesting facts concerning registration fees, cost of hotel rooms, and location of the symposia are presented. By looking at this full list one can get an accurate idea of how this series of Branch symposia evolved over the years.

When one looks at the titles of these 43 symposia the variety of subjects is impressive. In addition to the actual symposium, many of these also resulted in a book of collected papers. The first symposium was published by Charles C. Thomas; then starting in 1971 most were published by the University Park Press (through 1978) followed by Plenum Press starting in 1981. Because the Symposium Committee worked so well together, the work involved in producing the book, in most cases the symposium chairperson, was often far more labor intensive than organizing the actual symposium. The work on the book extended the role of the chairperson for at least a full year of prodding authors for manuscripts and editing the final version for inclusion in the book. If one compares the symposium date with the publication date it can be noted that many of the books took two years to produce a final publication. Over 20 books were published from the Branch Symposium Series. Unfortunately, except for the early works, the publisher was reluctant to provide the Branch with many extra free copies. At the current time, the Branch Archives only contains eight of the published books. (Those with a [*] following the publication). It should be noted that these publications, especially in the early years, generated a significant amount of royalties for the Branch. As the years progressed, and competition grew, there was a considerable decrease in the royalties. However, the book royalties combined with the money generated by commercial sponsorship for this very popular symposium series allowed the Branch to experiment with many innovative projects that would not have been possible without this financial base.

As experience was gained in conducting the symposia, various members of the executive committee consistently participated on the symposium committee and developed expertise in certain areas. The list that follows only contains the chairperson and co-chairs who served over the years. These people, along with the symposium committee, were responsible for the overall function of the committee, determining the topic, which speakers to solicit, and in most cases overseeing the publication of the proceedings. But please keep in mind that there were many committee members working on each symposium.

Rather than give a long summary, it seems more appropriate to give the actual list with some of the more interesting details. I thought it interesting to show the fluctuations of the registration fee (starting at $25) as well as how the cost for a single room ($27 at the Marriott Hotel in 1974) increased considerably over the years.

Branch Symposia Committee Members Listed by Year of Service 1969 to 2006

A year in brackets [xx] designates the person served as a symposium chairperson or as co-chair for that year.

Note some members have two listings for one year such as “90, 90” which indicates that it was a year when the Branch had both a Clinical and Basic Science Symposium and the person served on both committees.
