Historical Information

The Virginia Place Name Society was organized on 28 June 1960 in order to promote place name research in Virginia and to encourage by appropriate means systematic surveying and publication of place name information and findings. In addition, the Society acted as a clearinghouse for such information and made available place name publications. The administration of the Society was conducted by a board of directors which included a president, vice-president, secretary, treasurer and publications director. The Society's publications included Occasional Papers, which presented findings from a variety of place name related research projects. The Society also published six newsletters during 1972-1979. Due to a lack of funds and a declining interest by persons dedicated to carrying on the work of the Society, the organization dissolved in 1982.

The Place Name Survey of the United States' purpose was to survey, state by state, place name information on United States place names with a view toward making the assembled information available to interested persons. The organization established guidelines for all field work methods to ensure the research was valid. The Place Name Survey of Virginia was a subsidiary and regional branch of the Place Name Survey of the United States. Members of the Virginia Place Name Society were closely affiliated with the Place Name Survey of Virginia. Powell Burwell Rogers was the director of the Place Name Survey of the United States until his death. He was succeeded by Douglas W. Tanner.
