The last annual session of the American Medical Association held in Atlantic City was the greatest in attendance of any medical meeting ever held anywhere in the world. More than 8,000 physicians registered their presence, as well as thousands of exhibitors, wives of physicians and others. The illustrations published elsewhere in this issue of The Journal are an indication not only of this tremendous gathering but also of the extraordinary facilities which Atlantic City supplies to a convention of this character. The technical and scientific exhibits, as well as all the scientific sections, are comfortably housed in the immense auditorium that is a feature of the "Convention City." Moreover, the great hotels that front on the ten mile boardwalk along the ocean yield accommodations suitable to every purse and of exceptional quality.
Atlantic City makes available every type of facility necessary for combining a vacation with attendance at a meeting.
