The SI was then inaugurated at a meeting in March 1957 and four of the members were from the U.S. Meanwhile, SI member Alan Greengrass was pursuing at library school degree at Columbia University in New York City in 1967, who met a fellow student, Mary Flad and suggest the need for a professional organization of indexers.
