The Devonshire Association (DA) is a learned society founded in 1862 by William Pengelly and modelled on the British Association, but concentrating on research subjects linked to Devon in the focal areas of science, literature and the arts. The first meeting was held in Exeter in 1862 with a membership of 69 and, except for 1942, meetings have been held annually in different locations around the county. An Association history as well as a comprehensive list of Presidents from 1863 to 2011 is available in Wikipedia. After an interval of 24 years the Association held its Annual 1916 Meeting at Plymouth, and was favoured by brilliant weather and a large attendance. On 18th July a Council meeting was held in the Athenaeum, and at its conclusion the members of the Association assembled in the Council Chamber, where they received a civic welcome from the Mayor (Alderman T. Baker, J.P.), The Plymouth Meeting Proceedings can be found in a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal that can be downloaded from the Internet Archive.
