Abstract For a long time now, and especially since the armistice, there has been a strong desire among surgeons to simplify and standardize the treatment of fractures. The individual preferences were, before the war, so diverse that this seemed impossible, and since the war few have believed that any group of men could get together and agree on the essentials of the treatment of fractures. At a medical meeting held in January, 1922, it was suggested that an attempt be made by a group of men interested in fractures to come to some agreement as to the treatment of the more frequent ones. Those present suggested that the Massachusetts General Hospital call the meeting, as the first fracture service had been established there, in 1917, by Dr. Charles L. Scudder.
