Historical Note:
Science Service was founded in 1921 by newspaper publisher Edward Willis Scripps (1854-1926) and the zoologist William Emerson Ritter (1856-1944) as a news service for the purpose of disseminating information on scientific progress to the public, and to "present facts in readable and interesting form." The service provided news stories to subscribing newspapers and issued the Daily Science News Bulletin (later renamed the Daily Mail Report) and the Science News Letter. Science Service made major contributions to science education through its sponsorship of the Science Clubs of America, the Science Talent Search, and National Science Fairs. Its monthly Things of Science educational kits were distributed by subscription from 1940 to 1989. The Science News Letter was renamed Science News in 1966. In 1988, Science Service became the Society for Science & the Public.
