Four Decades Later, AIHce Returns
The last time the nation's foremost industrial hygiene groups gathered in Denver in a large-scale way, American astronaut Neil Armstrong was still two months away from stepping down from the Apollo 11 landing craft, making "one giant leap for mankind."
Within a month of that historic step, some 400,000 people would gather at Max Yasgur's dairy farm in New York to celebrate Woodstock. It was the year both "Sesame Street" and Boeing's 747 jumbo jet debuted in their respective airways. 1969 marked, on many fronts, the end of one era and the beginning of another.
Forty-one years later, the focus will be decidedly on the future when the 2010 American Industrial Hygiene Conference and Expo--turning 71 this year--hits the Colorado Convention Center in downtown Denver May 22-27. The event's theme this year is "New Frontiers in Science and Practice."
