American Forensic Association - Founders


The following members of the American Forensic Association joined the Association of Directors of Speech Activities, which was the immediate forerunner of the AFA, prior to December 10, 1949. Meeting at three meetings at the annual convention of the Speech Association of America, the group founded the American Forensic Association and drafted its first Constitution. Those meetings occurred at the Stevens Hotel (now the Chicago Hilton and Towers) on South Michigan Street in Chicago, Illinois, in December 1949.

Famous quotes containing the word founders:

    The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison.
    Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–1864)

    A spot whereon the founders lived and died
    Seemed once more dear than life; ancestral trees,
    Or gardens rich in memory glorified
    Marriages, alliances, and families,
    And every bride’s ambition satisfied.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    It was no wonder that her sons stood tall and straight. She was a rich mine of life, like the founders of early races.
    Willa Cather (1873–1947)
