In 1952, a group of mass spectrometrists petitioned the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) for the creation of a committee specifically on mass spectrometry and allied topics. The committee, which became known as ASTM E-14, was a precursor to the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS), which was subsequently organized in 1969.
