Abstract

The student of medicine in the United States, in a short-sighted endeavor to have his valuable time all count for what he considers "practical," is prone to slight the historical side of medicine. Some of our medical faculties are endeavoring to give their students at least a taste of medical history, but there are other means of emphasizing historical dates, for example, ceremonies commemorating events of either local, state or national importance. Such a contribution to the education of the student and physician is "Ether Day," which will be celebrated October 16 at the Massachusetts General Hospital. This day will be the sixtieth anniversary of the performance of the first operation under ether at that hospital.
