Abstract

The annual session of the British Medical Association, held in London beginning July 21 and continuing through the week, was in celebration of its one hundredth anniversary. The Journal tenders to the organized British medical profession sincere and warm congratulations on having achieved this notable age and therewith an extraordinary record of service. Members of the British medical profession from far and near were present at the celebration. The American Medical Association was represented by three delegates: Dr. George H. Simmons, Dr. Henry O. Reik and Dr. Emmet Horgan.

In addition to the usual features of an annual session, a pilgrimage to Worcester was included for the unveiling of two monuments to Sir Charles Hastings, who founded the association in 1832. Lord Dawson of Penn, incoming president, delivered an address on "One Hundred Years and After," and Professor Julian Huxley gave a popular lecture on "The Biology of Human Nature."
