American Ceramic Society Bulletin, Vol. 100, No. 8 | 9 Celebrating 100 years book called “American Ceramic Society: 100 Years” that was designed to celebrate “not only the history of the Society itself, but the history of ceramics in America.” Copies of the book are still available for purchase through various online booksellers. The Society changed the name of two Divisions during the 1990s. The Glass Division became the Glass & Optical Materials Division, with the new name first being used in the June 1990 issue. However, it took until 1994 for the Division to be consistently called by its new name. The Nuclear Division became the Nuclear & Environmental Technology Division in 1994. One other Division name change— Refractories to Refractory Ceramics— occurred at the very end of the 1980s. The change was proposed because “major changes in the business climate of the refractories industry and its customers threaten to make the old practices less effective,” the July 1988 issue explains. The change reflects the Division’s expanded interest to include other high-temperature ceramics that “are at present not usually recognized as refractories.” The change took place in 1989. DIVISIONS OF THE SOCIETY During the 1990s, the Society had 11 Divisions.
