Biographical/Historical Note

The Southern Gerontological Society (SGS) was established in 1978 as a network of gerontology professionals, educators, researchers, and policy makers in the southern United States. The organization has its roots in the Southern Conference on Gerontology (founded in 1951). On March 28, 1978, several professionals working in the Southern Conference met to develop a plan for the new regional society, which would be presented at the 28th annual meeting of the Southern Conference in May of 1979. At the March 28 meeting, committees were formed to further carry out the plan of organization. Tom Rich, from the University of Florida, chaired a Bylaws Committee; Lorin Baumhover, from the University of Alabama, chaired a Membership Committee; Barbara Payne, from Georgia State University, chaired a Meetings Committee; and Gordon Streib, from the University of Florida, chaired an Executive Committee. Further planning sessions in 1978 led to the first election of officers. Brabara Payne was elected as the first president; Priscella Perry, from the University of Miami, was the first Vice President; and Lorin Baumhover was the first Secretary and Treasurer.

SGS began publishing a regular newsletter (which would eventually be named the Southern Gerontologist) in 1979 and established its first annual meeting in 1980. The theme of the first annual meeting was "Aging in the South: Cooperation for Tomorrow," and drew participants from twenty states. In 1982, SGS began publishing a scholarly journal, the Journal of Applied Gerontology. Since its inception, SGS membership has grown to represent at least 30 states, Washington, D.C., and Canada.

Scope and Contents

The papers include materials relating to the organization, administration, finances, meetings, publications, conferences and programs of the Southern Gerontological Society. The Southern Gerontological Society organized an annual conference meeting (1980-present), published a newsletter (The Southern Gerontologist, 1979-present) and an academic journal (Journal of Applied Gerontology, 1982-present), and implemented numerous educational and training programs for gerontology professionals. The papers include documentation, correspondence, meeting minutes, contracts and grants, and other materials related to these programs and publications. Also included are correspondence and materials concerning the relationship between the Southern Gerontological Society and other organizations concerned with the issues of aging populations. The papers, however, are not comprehensive. The bulk of the materials are from the 1980s, but some materials from the 1970s, 1990s, and 2000s are also included.
