The Rooting and Emergence of Regional Science as a Major Field of Study



The year 1956 saw three developments significant for the association and regional science in general. First, there was a major step forward in the formal recognition of the association as a legitimate social science organization and consequently its incorporation in the Allied Social Science Associations group. This involved the inclusion of its officers and December sessions in the combined ASS A printed program for the December 1956 meetings of nine associations. The nine were: American Economic Association, American Finance Association, American Marketing Association, Industrial Relations Research Association, American Farm Economics Association, Econometric Society, American Association of Teachers of Insurance, Regional Science Association—holding joint meetings with: Catholic Economic Association.
