Stephen Howe 110th President has collated these lists of the Presidents and Secretary of the sections.

At various times in the life of the Society it has had members who felt the desire to setup a section for focussed study of an area of science above their general membership of the parent body. These sections were an active part of the overall Society for many decades with sections coming and going and in some cases breaking off to become totally seperate groups. Many people contributed to the sucessful running of the sections and they are recorded here. As with much of the work that has already gone on to pressent the history pages this is a task of contsiderable work and it is not complete, but is to a point that is worth sharing.

At current, time does not permit the detailed research of all the people who served the sections only, but many of them were also at some points Presidents of the parent body and as such have been researched and their lives described as part of the main 150th celebration website. A few have also been documented on our page of other key people. Where someone has been documented in that work, their presidental page is linked from this page. When time permits I hope to revisit the Presidents pages and show their sectional roles in more detail
