Gordon Research Conferences
Supporting GRC

Founding Sponsors

When Dr. Gordon originally conceived the idea of scientific Conferences, he approached many industrial organizations in the hope of obtaining financial assistance to promote the venture. The Founding Sponsors, listed below, operating in the face of the Great Depression, each provided a one-time contribution of $1,000. Thus began the Gibson Island Research Conferences, later known as the Chemical Research Conferences, and eventually Gordon Research Conferences. From the beginning, the Conferences have operated as a self-supporting, non-profit organization.
