This is part of a program to follow the evolution of protoplanetary accretion disks through the ages thought to be crucial to understanding disk dissipation and planet formation (∼3-10Myr). Combining optical photometry and optical spectroscopy, we have identified ∼40 members in Tr37 and ∼15 in NGC7160, using several independent tests for determining the membership (optical colors, optical variability, Hα emission, and Liλ6707 absorption). Description: Our optical photometry observations of Tr37 and NGC7160 were carried on with the 1.2m telescope at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory (FLWO), using the 4Shooter CCD array, between 1998 and 2002. Optical spectra of the most likely cluster members were taken in three Hydra/3.5m WIYN observing runs in 1999 January-August, 2000 November, and 2002 November. Additional spectra for the brighter candidates were observed with FAST/1.5m telescope in several remote runs from 2001 to 2003. File Summary:
