Dr. Thomas O. Gorman was elected to be the first official president of the society. The first annual meeting was held in Dallas, at the Adolphus Hotel, in March of 1921, with eleven members present. The society’s original geographic make-up included the states of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Arkansas. The boundaries were extended in 1923 to include Kansas. In 1953, during his term as president of the Southwestern Society, Dr. Clarence W. Koch appointed a committee to oversee a memorial established in honor of Dr. Martin Dewey. Dr. Dewey was involved in many Southwestern Society programs and many society members had graduated from his Dewey School of Orthodontia.
