Description

THE JOURNAL OF THE SOCIETY OF AUTOMOTIVE ENGINEERS, 1918 – 1984, bound as 126 Volumes, The Society of Automobile Engineers was founded in New York City in 1905. It began to accept members of the American Society of Aeronautical Engineers, the Society of Tractor Engineers, National Association of Engine and Boat Manufacturers, the National Gas Engine Association, and the American Society of Agricultural Engineers in 1916. The following year Elmer Sperry coins the word "automotive", from Greek autos (self), and Latin motivus (of motion) origins to represent any form of self-powered vehicle and changes the name to Society of Automotive Engineers in February 1917, later that year the first issue of the SAE Journal was published.
