HISTORY OF AES
The National Association for the Study of Epilepsy and the Care and Treatment of Epileptics was organized in New York in 1898 under the guidance of William Pryor Letchworth, L.L.D. and Frederick Peterson, M.D. Membership was for "any person interested in the scientific study of epilepsy, or in the study of ways and means to improve the condition of epileptics, or in sociological subjects generally."
