About SME Penn-Anthracite Section

The American Institute of Mining Engineers was founded in 1871 at a meeting at the Wyoming Valley Hotel on South River Street in Wilkes-Barre. Present at this meeting were a group of 22 mining engineers, mostly from the area of today’s Pennsylvania Anthracite Section of the Society of Mining Engineers – Carbon, Columbia, Dauphin, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Sullivan, and Wyoming Counties in Northeastern Pennsylvania. After the three-day meeting there were 71 members of AIME.

On February 17, 1914, the Pennsylvania Anthracite Section became the 10th local chapter of AIME. The Section continues to this day as a vibrant group in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
