75th Anniversary of the Amateur Entomologists' Society

Published: 05 January 2010

The Amateur Entomologists Society celebrates its 75th anniversary in 2010. The Society was formed in 1935 by Leonard Tesch and has run for 75 years through the efforts of presidents, council members and members of the society.

Today the Amateur Entomologists Society publishes four periodicals (Entomologist's Record, The Bulletin, Bug Club Magazine [now a joint publication with the Royal Entomological Society] and Invertebrate Conservations News), thirty books and holds many different events for entomologists each year. In addition the AES is extremely active in the field of invertebrate conservation both at a policy level and through our own conservation projects.

We will celebrate our anniversary throughout 2010 but will specifically mark the 75th anniversary of the Society with a historical display at our 2010 Members' day. If you have any historical information or items pertaining to the AES that would be of interest to other members then please do contact us.
