1899 The APHA, holds a meeting in Minneapolis to appoint a committee
which would extend their ‘standard procedures’ (developed
previously by W.H. Welch) to “all other lines of investigation involved
in the analysis of water.” This committee was called, the “Committee
on Standard Methods of Water Analysis” and was charged with the
extension of standard procedures to all methods involved in the
analysis of water.
1899 William Pitt Mason writes the seminal, “Examination of Water”
1900 - 1st progress report by 1899 APHA committee
1901 - 2nd progress report by 1899 APHA committee
1902 - 3rd progress report by 1899 APHA committee
1905 A ‘Report’ (representing the 4th and final APHA committee report)
entitled, “Standard Methods of Water Analysis,” was published as a
supplement to the Journal of Infectious Diseases. This report, which
had been previously presented to the Laboratory Section of the
APHA in Havana in January 1905, was developed by G.W. Fuller,
Sec-G.C. Whipple, Sec-H.W. Clark, E.O. Jordan, H.L. Russell, J.W.
Ellms, and R.S. Weston.
