The Origin of the IADR Logo

At the Forty-Sixth General Meeting of the IADR held in San Francisco, California, March 1968, the Committee decided to approach industrial firms in the fields of medical and dental illustration. ARRCO Medical Art and Design Company in Boston was engaged to prepare preliminary sketches of a revised emblem for consideration by the Committee.
