Southern California Academy of Sciences had its beginnings in 1891 when some twenty persons interested in scientific lore and research met in a small hall in Los Angeles and formed the Southern California Science Association, subsequently reorganized to the Southern California Academy of Sciences. Publications regarding specimens collected during the Los Angeles County Museum Channel Islands Biological Survey (1939-1941), an interdisciplinary research survey proposed by Don Meadows in 1938 to the directors of the Los Angeles Museum, appeared irregularly in Southern California Academy of Sciences Bulletins from 1939 to 1962, and today the specimens collected continue to serve scientists.

January 3, 1892 [LAH]: “Justice P. E. King of Burbank, on a recent trip to San Clemente Island, secured a curiosity, which has been named "What-is-it?". Mr. King thinks it is a petrified ostrich egg. Others think it is a petrified rock egg; others that it is a geode, and so on. Mr. King presented it to the Southern California Science Association, and Dr. B. H. Alter has the "What-is-it?" in his custody for the society.”
