RISTORICAL ACCOUNT OF TEA COMMITTEE: ON CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS OF Am: CONsFERENCIl: ON ELEC11IICAL INSULATION This current volume marks the tenth annual review of the literature on dielectrics. It therefore seems fitting to give an account of the organization and function of the Committee on Chemistry and Physics of the Conference on Electrical Tr`aulation and to name ~ ome of the men ho have been responsible for carrying out there functions. The Conference on Electrical Insulation grew out of the Committee an Electrical Insulation established by the National Research Council during florid liar I. After a few years of in- action following this ~, activities were resumed with ~ meeting at Johns Fonkins University in 1928. The Conference continued to meet as a very t~formal organization supported fi'^~cial.ly by some of the companies boas personnel were afire in ~;he ~,~nterence; and reporting to the National Research Council from time t.- time. The Chairmen of the Conference is ap~cinted by the Division of Er~gineering and Industrial Research of the Sectional Research Council. The organizational structure of the Conference, in- cluding names of current comrai~Gtee members, ^~l be found ~ n the Annual Report. A eked eton outline trollops below: National Research Council Division of Engineering and Tr~austrial Research. Conference on Electrical Ine'u1~tion66 Committee on Chemistry and Physics The principle activities of the Conference on Electrical Insulation are as follows: 1 O To promote end scone or an annual meeting at Rich .~ere and discuselons on the subject of dielectrics are ~resented. ,, 2. To Publish an abstract of these r)a?:ers in a yearly report of the acti~ri~cies of the conference known as the Annual Report.

Earlier issues of the Annual Reports are out of print although the caners abstracted therein have for tne most Dart appeared in the permanent scientific literature.
