The Mid-Michigan AIChE local section was founded in 1952 and has been active ever since.  In 1983, when the National AIChE marked 75 years of service to our profession, the leaders of the Mid-Michigan Section, Gus L. Constan and Fred C. Justice, created a history of the Mid-Michigan section and its contributions at that point. That history, including an overview of our section’s accomplishments to that date, is given in the link below
