The Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory is a unique institution located on the south shore of Cape Cod on a spit of land between Buzzards Bay on the one side and Vineyard Sound on the other. It is a research and collecting institute joined by strong ties to departments of zoology in many of the country's leading universities. Its importance to medicine lies in its fundamental contribution to an allied science and in the not inconsiderable number of physicians who have received early biologic training in this laboratory. Professor Lillie has been closely connected with the laboratory since its earliest days, and it is both fortunate and appropriate that he should be the author of this welcome history of its scientific and economic development.
