On Sephir 13, 957 NS, 33 explorers and scientists called by Bartholomew Compass gathered at the One Tree Tavern, a reputable tavern then located on Golden Dawn Square in Jaress, to organize "a society for the increase and diffusion of geographical knowledge." After preparing a charter and a plan of organization, the Compass Society of World Knowledge was incorporated two weeks later on Sephir 27. Bartholomew became its first president and his son, Graham Compass, eventually succeeded him in 966 following his death.
