Development of a unified organization for British crystallographers was hindered, especially during the 1960s and 1970s, because of the separation of crystallographic groups for physicists and chemists. This was due partly to loyalties to different parent societies and partly to associated financial problems. The British Crystallographic Association was eventually formed by the creation of groups that were affiliated jointly to the parent societies and to the new Association. Founder Members and industrial Founder Sponsors made the Association financially viable, and it is now one of the largest crystallographic societies in the world.
