The Population Council, Inc.

In 1952, the world was awakening to the rapid growth in population that was occurring around the globe. Impressed by the complexities of population issues, convinced of their fundamental significance for human well-being, and undeterred by the sensitivity then associated with birth control, John D. Rockefeller 3rd convened a group of scientists to discuss the implications of the dramatic demographic change. They met in Williamsburg, Virginia, under the auspices of the National Academy of Sciences, and after two and a half days agreed on the need for a new institution that could provide solid science to guide governments and individuals in addressing population questions.
