The plans and arrangements for this symposium were made by a committee composed of G. G. Manov, D. S. McKinney, G. A. Perley, and E. B. Ashcraft. The plan adopted was to attempt to cover four broad topics in the symposium: a history of the field; a discussion of fundamentals and the broad theoretical basis for pH determinations; recent advances in the principal methods and techniques; and applications to particular fields. Within the limitations set by time and the availability of speakers, the following papers represent the execution of this plan. The historical review is presented in a single paper by C. N. Myers. The theoretical discussion of the basis for pH determination is covered principally in the two papers by M. Kilpatrick and by D. S. McKinney, P. Fugassi, and J. C. Warner and partly by that of G. G. Manov. Recent advances in the principal methods and techniques are presented in the papers by M. Dole, F. R. McCrumb, and G. G. Manov. Methods of making pH determinations in a particular field, that of petroleum products, are explained in the paper by L. Lykken. Brief mention of recent applications to various fields is made also by M. Dole.
