Lack of an historical sense is the bane of many workers in the domain of Science…. The matter of the Texas Academy of Science is another illustration in point. This was organized in 1892 (as we at the present know it) at the University of Texas, and continued active for twenty years (until 1912), having in the meantime published twelve volumes of Transactions. It then ceased its activities and became extinct (like the Texas State Horticultural Society, which existed from 1875 to 1922.) In 1929, the present Texas State Academy of Science was reorganized by five men, and has continued its activity to the present time.
