Abstract

This textbook first appeared in 1945. It was intended to be "in a form most practical for those interested in these specialties, be they students, teachers, specialists or general practitioners." It was an impressive achievement, and the current editors were assisted by a large and able group of authorities. The late Dr. Chevalier Jackson is represented here by over 30 discussions in a field he largely helped to make, i. e., that of bronchology and esophagology. Those unacquainted with the history of these two areas can easily overlook the magnitude of his contribution. A large part of it is accepted by many as part of the body of general knowledge, without any thought of its originator. Dr. Jackson, almost singlehandedly, developed this art at a time when the general level of training and excellence in this specialty was not high in America. He brought it to its present state and
