American Social Science Association
In 1865, at Boston, Massachusetts, a society for the study of social questions was organized and given the name American Social Science Association. The group grew to where its membership totaled about 1,000 persons. About 30 corresponding members were located in Europe. It published annually the Journal of Social Science.
Members of the group worked in five departments:
- Education and art
- Trade and finance
- Social economy
- Lucy M. Hall (1843-1907), physician, writer; Vice President of the ASSA
- American Association for the Promotion of Social Science (est.1865), predecessor to the ASSA
