of the Pacific region of North America, from Alaska to Mexico and from the Hooky Mountains to the Philippine Islands. It is not expected that the Committee of One Hundred will meet for active duty. In effect it will compose the background upon which the scientific interests of the Pacific region will on this occasion be seen in projection. Mrs. Phoebe Apperson Hearst has accepted appointment as Honorary President of the Committee. Br. Benjamin Ide Wheeler will be the President, and Dr. John Casper Brenner the Vice-President.In behalf of the Pacific Coast Committee, I respectfully invite you to membership in the Committee of One Hundred as one of about ten Honorary Vice-Presidents, end trust that you will grant us the favor of acceptance. In due time 8 printed list of the members will be sent you. The kindness of an early response is requested. I may say that the American Association for the Advancement of Science is the largest scientific society in America, with membership of approximately ten thousand widely distributed throughout North America and the related islands. About seven hundred members live in the Pacific region. Yours faithfully[illegible] Chairman Pacific Coast Committee. Dr. John Muir, Martinez, California.
