An important event on the science calendar of Kansas City, Missouri, occurred last fall when the International Conference on Small‐Angle X‐Ray Scattering by Metals was held at the Midwest Research Institute on September 23–25, 1958. It was the first major scientific conference to be held in Kansas City, and it resulted, indirectly, from the intense interest of Kansas City's civic leaders in having their city recognized as a scientific center as well as for its steaks.
