JAMA 100 Years Ago Section Editor: Jennifer Reiling, Assistant Editor.
The Council on Pharmacy and Chemistry has now been in existence three years, during which time there has been no change in its personnel.
The Council at first was organized in a more or less tentative way, with no definite plan as regarded its perpetuation, this being left for the future to develop. As will be noted, however, in the Pharmacology Department this week, definite by-laws and regulations relating to the permanency of the Council have now been adopted. It will be noticed also that the first change in the membership of the Council has just taken place. This would seem an opportune time to call attention to the immense amount of self-sacrificing work this Council has done during these three years; to enlarge on the splendid character of this work and its far-reaching results, and to advert to the good that already has been accomplished in many ways. This,
however, must be left for another time.
