The GEOGRAPHY IN AMERICA TIMELINE is now being prepared as a project of the Association of American Geographer's Centennial Coordinating Committee in celebration of the Association's centennial in 2004.

Current TIMELINE entries are drafts of a work in progress and are made available for discussion and comment only. Your reactions to the TIMELINE are sought, especially in terms of contributing additional entries.

To easily search the TIMELINE for topics that interest you, use your browser’s ‘FIND’ function, usually located under ‘Edit’ on the control bar or by using ‘Ctrl F.’ If, for instance, you are interested in viewing entries pertaining to geography journals, enter the word ‘journal.’ This will take you through the TIMELINE, journal entry by journal entry, as each journal entry, including ones like Geographical Review that do not contain the word ‘journal’ in their title, include the word in the entry.

Please send your responses, both questions and draft entries, to the TIMELINE editor, Donald C. Dahmann at, 703-765-3584, or 1914 Martha's Road, Alexandria, Virginia 22307.
