In 2012 the Georgian Society for East Yorkshire celebrated its 75th anniversary. It was in January 1937 that Rupert Alec-Smith proposed the formation of a special Georgian committee of the East Riding Antiquarian Society 'to deal with making a list of buildings of that period in our Riding, and any other matters deemed necessary with regard to the preservation of Georgian buildings'. This committee was soon transformed into the Georgian Society for East Yorkshire which held its first Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday 2 June 1937. Two days later the Georgian Group of the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings held its inaugural meeting in London.
