This Webinar:

This webinar provides a brief exposition of the two founding institutes of IEEE: AIEE (American Institute of Electrical Engineers) and IRE (Institute of Radio Engineers). It will describe the formation of the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) through the merger of AIEE and IRE. AIEE had a strong technical component in power engineering, however, after the merger there was a recognized need for a power group which eventually became PES (Power & Energy Society). The webinar concludes with a review of PES today and its success. 

Anyone interested in the history of technology, especially electric power engineering, will find this webinar of interest.
