Title: History of Dallas Geological Society: GEOLOGIC NOTES

Author(s): Joseph M. Wilson (2)


Southwestern Geological Society was organized in Dallas in 1919 by Robert T. Hill et al. The Fort Worth-Dallas Section (ancestor of our Dallas Geological Society) was one of six sections of the Southwestern Geological Society. The Fort Worth-Dallas Section soon split up into the Fort Worth Section and the Dallas Section. We were called the Dallas Section until 1924 when Southwestern Geological Society was disbanded and we then became Dallas Petroleum Geologists, affiliated with The American Association of Petroleum Geologists. Then in 1945, we changed our name to Dallas Geological Society to conform to the nomenclature of societies throughout the world affiliated with AAPG.
