Abstract from the 2019 Oregon Academy of Science (OAS) conference held on February 23, 2019 at Linfield College, McMinville, OR. The abstract documents the process by which "Kinesiology" became a visible discipline on the OAS program for the first time in 2019. Preserving this historical moment may be important for posterity, as well as understanding how this all came about. Others interested in advancing Kinesiology as a scientific discipline may find value in this work. It documents a unique form of disciplinary advocacy.
