The Tufts College Medical School has presented each year a pageant of the history of medicine. The first two have already been published in book form. With increasing experience the material becomes more finished. Students are chosen from the second, third and fourth years who make an earnest effort to bring to life the characters they impersonate. The present volume carries the reader and the listener from Imhotep to Roentgen. The book is nicely illustrated. The essays, while brief, are highly suggestive.
