The American Ornithologists' Union was founded in the fall of 1883, and its origins are of genuine and relevant interest as we discuss the proposed Society for Ornithology. The best account I have read is Chapter XVII in Cutright & Brodhead's (1981) Elliott Coues:Naturalist and Frontier Historian (a book I would recommend). I attach this chapter for the interested reader (there is more of interest in other chapters, but this covers the basics).

Regards, K.
