    (quarterly).
    A special act of the Legislature incorporated this organization
in 1870. Its object is the promotion of the sciences, arts and letters
with principal attention to Wisconsin subjects and the work of
the state's scientists, educators and scholars. This purpose is ac-
complished through the publication of significant studies, investi-
gations, reviews and news, the encouragement of co-operation and
exchange of information, an annual meeting for presentation of
papers and academy business, and the accumulation of an exchange
library. The academy's transactions are exchanged with 170 for-
eign countries. In return, the academy receives a wealth of ma-
terial which constitutes a valuable library. This is incorporated
into the collections of the University of Wisconsin's Memorial
Library and is available in the same manner as all university li-
brary books. The academy also sponsors a Junior Academy of
Sciences which conducts regional contests with awards for the
winning students. The senior academy now has over 1,150 mem-
bers and any citizen of Wisconsin interested in its purposes may
make application for membership.
