A searching ly critical appraisal of progress in knowledge of concrete and of its application t o practice appeared as an editorial in Engineering News Record, Feb. I, 1923, a few days after the Institute’s 19th annual convention in Cincinnati that year. Coming to light recently in an ACI office scrapbook, it inspired a reappraisal of progress for ACI's 44th annual convention, Feb. 23-26, 1948. Through the courtesy of Engineering-News Record it is republished as the point of departure for a full session at the 1948 convention in Denver.
