In looking back over the period of forty years that has elapsed since the Sub-Committee of Ten on Geology and Geography met in Chicago under the chairmanship of the late Professor T. C. Chamberlin in 1893, two encouraging indications of advance in the standing of Geography in our educational system are to be seen. One is the organization of the Association of American Geographers; the other is the greatly increased attention given to Geography in our colleges. These two advances have very naturally gone hand in hand; they have reacted on each other to mutual profit, and the two results in a third advance: a great increase in the number of college students who are attracted to Geography as a subject worthy of their attention.
