ENTERTAINMENT FOR LADIES Mrs. Henry Gale, chairman of the Ladies' Committee, has reported the present stage of plans for entertaining the ladies while their husbands are attending the scientific sessions. On Wednesday, there will be an automobile trip up the North Shore, luncheon and visits to two or three private gardens, with tea; on Thursday afternoon, a visit to the University of Chicago campus, with tea at the Ida Noyes Hall; in the late afternoon, probably on Friday, a boat trip on the lake in private boats of Chicago yachtsmen. For at least the first and last of these functions the parties will be limited in number. Plans for registering for them will be announced in the printed programs for the meetings, along with plans for visiting other points of interest in Chicago by individual request, guest memberships at the women's clubs, etc.
Seventy-six years later, the 2009 AAAS annual meeting will take place in the Windy City once again where my two X chromosomes and I will be in a February 14th panel. And while automobile and boat trips are still lovely, I suspect most of the ladies present will be more than 'entertained' by the scientific sessions this time.
