AMC is Launched1876
Professor Edward Charles Pickering (MIT) and entomologist Samuel Hubbard Scudder (an ardent collector of butterflies in the Berkshires) establish the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) to explore and preserve New Hampshire's White Mountains. The club is incorporated two years later. Today it is the oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization in the U.S.
