About & Where to Find Print Page

Is it "berjeez"?

Use the Germanic hard "G" as in "game," not the French soft "G," as in "giraffe." The last syllable rhymes with "key."

Where is Bergey's?

You can find both manuals in the Science-Health Science Library (CN016) reference and circulating collections.

About/General Information

Cover ArtThe first edition of Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology was initiated by action of the Society of American Bacteriologists (now called the American Society for Microbiology) by appointment of an Editorial Board consisting of David H. Bergey (Chairman), Francis C. Harrison, Robert S. Breed, Bernard W. Hammer and Frank M. Huntoon. This Board, under the auspices of the Society of American Bacteriologists who, then as now, published the Journal of Bacteriology as a service to science, brought the first edition of the Manual into print in 1923. The Board, with some changes in membership and Dr Bergey as Chairman, published a second edition of the Manual in 1925 and a third edition in 1930. (from About Bergey's Trust)

  • Bergey's Manual Trust
    Through the years the Manual has become a widely used international reference work for bacterial taxonomy. Similarly, the Bergey's Manual Trust has become international in its composition, in the location of its meetings and in the breadth of its consultations. In addition to its publication activities, the Trust attempts to foster and support various aspects of taxonomic research.
