ACCEPTANCE BY DR. HAROLD K. FABER

ACCEPTANCE BY DR. HAROLD K. FABER Abstract President Butler, Dr. Anderson, and other members of the American Pediatric Society, to which with pride and affection I have belonged for so many years, I accept this great honor most gratefully as a measure of your friendship and esteem. The occasion is an unnerving one for me, as I suspect it may have been for my predecessors, and I face it with emotions of humility, pleasure, and gratitude. Since last December when Dr. McGuinness's timely telegram brought me Christmas tidings of great joy and amazement, I have labored unavailingly with the task of finding, to quote Dr. Butler's painful prescription, "words of wisdom and enlightenment" worthy of the occasion. Failing in this, I ask your indulgence if I merely offer a few rambling observations and thoughts on the extraordinary changes that have occurred in pediatrics, particularly in its preventive and therapeutic aspects, during the past four or five decades.

Abstract

Abstract President Butler, Dr. Anderson, and other members of the American Pediatric Society, to which with pride and affection I have belonged for so many years, I accept this great honor most gratefully as a measure of your friendship and esteem. The occasion is an unnerving one for me, as I suspect it may have been for my predecessors, and I face it with emotions of humility, pleasure, and gratitude. Since last December when Dr. McGuinness's timely telegram brought me Christmas tidings of great joy and amazement, I have labored unavailingly with the task of finding, to quote Dr. Butler's painful prescription, "words of wisdom and enlightenment" worthy of the occasion. Failing in this, I ask your indulgence if I merely offer a few rambling observations and thoughts on the extraordinary changes that have occurred in pediatrics, particularly in its preventive and therapeutic aspects, during the past four or five decades.
