On September 29, 1960, the Third Annual Meeting of the Corporate Associates of the American Institute of Physics was held at Columbia University's Arden House near Harriman, N.Y. Pages 19 through 28 of this issue are devoted to the central event of the meeting, a panel discussion on the topic “Physics and Engineering in a Free Society”. Under the leadership of C. Guy Suits of the General Electric Company, whose introductory comments on that occasion appear on the following page, the panel approached its assigned subject from the three points of view represented by the professional interests of the three speakers: Julius A. Stratton of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (education), E. R. Piore of the International Business Machines Corporation (industry), and Gerard Piel of the Scientific American (the public). The meeting was attended by officers of the Institute of Physics and its Member and Associate Member Societies as well as by some seventy‐five representatives of the AIP Corporate Associates, a group of organizations, primarily industrial in character, which helps to support the efforts of the Institute in contributing to the advancement of physics. A complete list of the Corporate Associates of the American Institute of Physics is to be found on page 29.
