Moving from December to January, the Association’s 108th annual meeting was held in San Francisco, California, from January 6–9, 1994, headquartered at the San Francisco Hilton and Towers. Many of the profession’s most distinguished members were present to deliver papers, and over 750 scholars, including 77 foreign scholars, will participate in the three-day meeting. In addition, over three dozen specialized societies met in conjunction with the AHA. Each society held its own sessions, luncheons, and/or meetings, as well as joint sessions with the Association.
