Arising from an ongoing project, 'Studies of the British Chemical Community,1880-1970: The principal institutions', this chapter investigates the nature of the membership of the Society of Chemical Industry from its foundation in 1881 until World War I. It stresses the affective, social nature of the Society for industrial chemists at a national level in this period, as contrasted with the scientific and technical activities at a more local level. The project generally has pointed to a far higher degree of trained chemical input to the British chemical industry than is hitherto recognized as well as a very wide range of chemical and other firms employing chemists.
