This paper is a revised version of a North American Regional Science Council Presidential Address delivered at the 57th North American Meetings of the Regional Science Association International, Denver, Colorado, November 11, 2010. The question 'What about aging in regional science?' is posed and discussed from three perspectives. First, the aging of the corpus of practitioners of the multidisciplinary field is considered. Second, views are expressed about how, as each of us individually ages, participation in the temporal and spatial web of the regional science community helps to structure and impart meaning to our professional lives. Third, it is argued that age and aging deserve more attention as regional science research continues to advance. The implications of aging for research in the author's specialty area of migration are discussed.
