Fresh from the press comes the fifteenth edition, dated 1938, of the American Medical Directory. It is a work embracing 2,565 pages and it stands supreme in its field as a storehouse of useful, accurate information. Among the data included are a complete analysis of the American Medical Association with a statement of its officers, its constitution and by-laws, and the various annual sessions which it has held. There is a detailed comparative statement of the numbers of physicians in the United States, its dependencies and Canada in all the previous editions of the Directory. The present edition lists 188,916 names, or 5,604 more than were in the Fourteenth Edition, issued in 1936. More than 100,000 changes have been made in the intervening two years, including 74,399 changes of address, the addition of 13,811 new physicians, and the removal of the names of 8,008 who have died.
