State historical marker to mining engineers to be dedicated in Wilkes-Barre, PA
May 4, 2016

The Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, the American Institute of Mining Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers (AIME), and the Society for Mining Metallurgy and Exploration and its Pennsylvania Anthracite Section will participate in the dedication of an official Commonwealth Historical Marker commemorating the 1871 founding of the American Institute of Mining Engineers on May 16.

The dedication ceremony will be held at 3 p.m., at West Market and South River streets and will include entertainment with Jay Smar performing traditional American and original folk tunes and coal mining songs of Northeast Pennsylvania starting at 2 p.m.

AIME was founded in 1871 by 22 mining engineers in Wilkes-Barre. AIME was one of the first national engineering societies established in the United States, and, along with ASCE (civil), ASME (mechanical), IEEE (electrical), and AIChE (chemical), it is known as an Engineering Founder Society. Together, the engineering Founder Societies form the United Engineering Foundation (UEF). With member societies, they represent more than 150,000 professionals worldwide.

For information, contact Mike Korb, Penn-Anthracite Society for Mining Engineers past chairman, 570-233-2191 or mikekorb@epix.net.
