JAMA 100 Years Ago Section Editor: Jennifer
Reiling, Assistant Editor.
CHICAGO, March 30, 1903.
To the Editor:—I wish to protest as vigorously
and publicly as may be against the sentiment, the lack of good taste, the
apparent deplorable motive, and the contents of the editorial with the Latinized
caption, on page 855 of the last issue of THE JOURNAL. This poorly conceived,
libelous and anonymous assault on the scientific labors of Dr. Jacques Loeb,
and on his personal character, does not add dignity to THE JOURNAL, nor is
it calculated to cultivate respect for the Association among the many students
of this pioneer in physiology. I have read it with shame and disgust, and
I call for a public apology from the censorial editor of this flagrant neglect
of duty.—BAYARD HOLMES, M.D.
