The Lepidopterists' Society was created in 1947 by students Charles L. Remington and Harry K. Clench in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They announced to their colleagues the intention to create a society which would be aimed at popularizing the studying of Lepidoptera. They decided to publish on a regular basis a thematic bulletin and also promote everyway the exchange of butterflies/moths and ideas between both lepidopterists and amateurs. Initially named The Lepidopterists' Union it was afterwards changed to The Lepidopterists' Society as it's known nowadays.
The first annual society meeting was held on December, 1950, and today there are members from over than 60 countries.
