Archives:IRE Yearbooks and Membership Directories


The IRE, one of IEEE's predecessor societies, regularly issued year books, from shortly after its founding until the 1963 merger that created IEEE. These year books contained a variety of current information on IRE, such as officers, constitution, bylaws, section guidelines, and awards, but the larges part of each issue was a membership directory, sorted both alphabetically and geographically, The directory included basic information on each member---date joined, membership grade, address, and employer.
