The 26th International Geological Congress, Paris, 1980.
In 1878, France hosted the first International Geological Congress
on the occasion of the International Exhibition held in Paris that
year. The decision to hold such a meeting in France had been taken
two years earlier at the Exhibition in Philadelphia. France also
wished to host the centenary Congress (102 years in fact, because of
the pattern of meetings established after the Second World War), as
this corresponded with the 150th year of the foundation of the Geological
Society of France in 1830, on the initiative of Ami Boué and
Constant Prévost, who were elected President and Secretary. Happily,
this wish was fulfilled.
Don't miss it, delicate palette, for a fan!
