Abstract

It is extremely grateful to me on this happy and memorable occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of this great National Association, to have the honor of welcoming you to the City of Philadelphia as Chairman of this Section.

In 1869, at the annual meeting the assembly adopted a resolution which recognized specialties as a proper and legitimate field of practice. From that time several sections of medical branches were established, no one, however, showed the necessity
