History of the AACG

The American Association for Crystal Growth was founded by a group of engineers and scientists who met to organize the First International Conference on Crystal Growth (ICCG-1) in Boston, MA, in 1966. The AACG was formally organized in 1969 and later (1974) incorporated in new Jersey as a non-profit organization. Drs. Kenneth A. Jackson and Robert A. Laudise of Bell Telephone Laboratories, who served as first Co-Presidents of AACG until 1975, provided early leadership.
