By Peter Paul Schepp, Frankfurt, Feb 2020

FEMS is very pleased to be able to post a fascinating article retracing the history of FEMS which is an abridged version of a document, written by FEMS former secretary (1998-2003) Peter Paul Schepp (photo, left), as part of the 100 year anniversary celebration of the German Materials Society - DGM. The original document is a chapter in the book by Helmut Maier: "Der Weg der DGM nach Europa – als Mitbegründerin und Mitglied der Federation of European Materials Societies – FEMS“, published in: Helmut Maier: 100 Jahre Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde 1919 bis 2019, Publisher: KLARTEXT Verlag, Essen, Germany, Nov 2019.
