In November 1936, Professors Charles L. Jamison of the University of Michigan and William N. Mitchell of the University of Chicago sent letters to teachers of management courses inviting them to a meeting at the Quadrangle Club, University of Chicago, to discuss the formation of an organization of educators to advance the philosophy of management. The professors attending the meeting on December 28, 1936, agreed that the new organization should be called the Academy of Management. Future annual meetings were to be used for exploring the organization’s purpose and presenting and discussing scholarly papers.
