More than 120 college and university physics instructors met at the University of Washington in Seattle on May 5 and 6, 1961, for a discussion of problems in undergraduate physics teaching. They represented 50 institutions in the states of Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington and the province of British Columbia, including virtually all of those which offer college‐level physics courses. This conference, sponsored jointly by the National Science Foundation and the University of Washington, was the first of its kind held in the Northwest. From the enthusiasm of the participants it may be judged to have served a strong and recurrent need.
