Baltimore Section Historical Notes

Originally Prepared: January 30, 2004

Chris Nemarich

Updated September 26, 2012 - IEEE History Center

The American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) was founded on May 13, 1884 in New York and quickly gained recognition as a representative for American electrical engineers. The Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) was formed from two largely local organizations, the 'Society of Wireless and Telegraph Engineers' and the 'Wireless Institute'.

The Baltimore Section of the AIEE was founded on December 16, 1904. In the 1950’s, the Baltimore Section was part of Region 3 in the AIEE.

The structural development and general activities of the IRE were similar to those of the AIEE. Many of the original members of the IRE were members of the AIEE and both organizations continued to have members in common until they merged.

In 1961, the leadership of both the IRE and the AIEE resolved to seek an end to these difficulties through consolidation. The next year a merger plan was formulated and approved and became effective on 1 January 1963. The Baltimore Section IEEE was formed in January 1963. It had 2 Subsections, Annapolis and Eastern Shore. The Section was part of Region 2. The Eastern Shore Subsection became a Section in 1972. The Eastern Shore Section was disbanded in 1999 and was folded back into the Baltimore Section.

In 2004,the Baltimore section IEEE celebrated it's centennial anniversary as an organizational body in the region. Then, it claimed more than 4,600 members in Baltimore City and the counties of Anne, Arundel, Carroll, Hartford, Howard, Calvert (the northern portion), Kent, Queen Anne's, Caroline, Dorchester, Wicomico, Somerset, and Worcester. Also, 796 different companies, universities, government and other organizations employed Baltimore Section members.

Currently, Baltimore is part of Region 2, in the IEEE organizational structure. Additionally, the Baltimore Section has an area specific website that includes information about meeting times, officers, and newsletter. The website also features links to various Baltimore Chapters and Affinity groups. In 2012, the Section claimed links to seventeen active Technical Chapters.
