Chapter Summary

The First North American Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy, held in San Antonio, Texas, in January 2011, was the first major event sponsored by the American Society of Greek and Latin Epigraphy. The publication of a selection of the papers delivered on that occasion thus provides a suitable opportunity to record briefly the origin and early history of an organization now approaching the end of its twentieth year. During the early months of 1995 a Canadian scholar, B.H. McLean approached half a dozen epigraphers in Canada and the United States and one from the United Kingdom to canvass their potential interest in starting a North American association. Over the first decade of the new millennium, the organization settled into a rhythm of regular annual business meetings and thematically-organized paper sessions jointly sponsored by American Philological Association (APA) and Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) at their combined annual meetings.
