Abstract For the 66th time, the American Academy of Ophthalmology and Otolaryngology held its annual session, once again crowded into the Palmer House in Chicago. This society was founded by Dr. Hal Foster of Kansas City in 1896 and has developed into a rather unique postgraduate educational institution fully deserving the title "Academy" (from "Akademia," the name of the gymnasium near Athens where Plato taught). The activities and magnitude of this organization have mushroomed to a point of decision. Statistics of the current meeting, Oct. 8-13, 1961, demonstrate its scope. Registration included 4,710 physicians (about 40% of the 7,050 members attended), 144 orthoptic technicians, 919 exhibitors, and 1,188 ladies, for a grand total of 6,961. Formal presentations in the scientific sessions included 7 symposia, 33 papers, and 9 movies; the highlights of the ophthalmologic presentations are given in the Archives section on "Meetings." In addition, 9 special scientific programs were presented http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
