Founded in 1935 by a gathering of geographers including graduate students and faculty from universities, normal schools, and junior colleges, the Association of Pacific Coast Geographers has a long and rich history promoting geographical education, research, and knowledge. Members gather at the APCG's annual meetings for social and intellectual interaction. They receive the annual Yearbook, first printed in 1935, that includes full-length peer-reviewed articles and abstracts of papers from the meetings. Members also receive the bi-annual newsletter Pacifica. Since 1952 the APCG has also been the Pacific Coast Regional Division of the American Association of Geographers, serving Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, the Canadian Province of British Columbia, and the Yukon Territory.
