The Chicago Section has the unique distinction as being the first American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) section formed outside New York. The first meeting of the Chicago Section was held on March 21, 1894, coinciding with the 85th meeting of the Institute in New York. The same paper "On the Effect of Heavy Gases in the Chamber of an Incandescent Lamp" was read and discussed simultaneously in Chicago and New York. In honor of 110th anniversary of this event, the Chicago Section staged a reenactment of the meeting on March 23, 2004 on the same campus where the original meeting was held.
