The quantum advances of American pediatrics of the last century have been built on the solid foundation constructed by our professional ancestors in pediatrics and other fields.

The Historical Archives Advisory Committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics has prepared this timetable of the evolution of our discipline. The list of signal events and important people is extensive, but to a degree is subjective and not all-inclusive. We apologize for any flagrant omissions.
