Some Brief Reflections on the Centennial of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress of 1915-1916

Roberta Marx Delson


The convening of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress one
hundred years ago in Washington, D.C. was the defining moment in the creation
of “scientific/intellectual Pan Americanism”, a movement which not only recognized
equality among scientists in the Americas, but was an important component of inter-
American cooperation during World War I. The successes achieved in Washington
should be understood as a continuation (albeit interrupted) of intellectual/political
interactions among scientists of the Americas dating back to the colonial period.
