Summary:

This accession consists of records that document the first through the eighth International Theriological Congress meetings. Locations for meetings include Moscow (1974), Brno (1978), Helsinki (1982), Edmonton (1985), Rome (1989), Sydney (1993), Acapulco (1997), and Sun City, South Africa (2001). Also included is the unsuccessful proposal for Beijing to host the 1993 meeting. In addition, there is one folder of Steering Committee records. Materials include correspondence, program book, overhead transparencies, agendas, itineraries, brochures, invitations, and other related materials.

Records documenting the ninth meeting in Sapporo, Japan, in 2005 (Accession 06-049) have been interfiled into this collection. This is the first meeting since the name change to the International Mammalogical Congress. Beginning with the congress in 2005, the International Theriological Congress will be known as the International Mammalogical Congress. The name change was decided at the 2001 congress in Sun City, South Africa. Originally, the word "theriological" was adopted at the first congress in Moscow (1974) because it was the term used by the Russians and other Eastern European countries when referring to the study of mammals. The term "mammalogical" was adopted at the 2001 congress because it is more universally recognized name for the discipline.
