Our photometry extends over a 37'x1° field centered on the association. We construct reddening contours within the imaged field. We find that the two clusters share a common distance modulus of 11.75±0.05 and ages of log[age(yr)]=7.1±0.1. From the V-Hα color, a measure of the Hα emission strength, we conduct a survey for emission line objects within the association. We detect a sample of 33 Be stars, eight of which are new detections. We present a scenario of evolutionary enhancement of the Be phenomenon to account for the peak in Be fraction toward the top of the main sequence in the population of h and χ Persei and similar young clusters. UBVI and Hα photometry was performed on five nights between 1999 August 17 and 25 at the San Diego State University Mount Laguna Observatory with the 1m telescope and a Loral 2048x2048 CCD.
