The first regular meeting and technical session was held March 13, 1947, in the Student
Union of the University of Tulsa. The original constitution and bylaws were drafted by
V. L. Jones, Stanley W. Wilcox, and the temporary officers. The charter members were
signed, bringing the total membership to 130. The temporary officers served until the
May 1947 meeting.
