Abstract

To the Editor:—  Please note a correction in my address as chairman of the Section on Ophthalmology, appearing in The Journal (141:962 [Dec. 3] 1949). It stated therein, "In 1878 Dr. X. C. Scott of Ohio again presented the proposal, and it was adopted. Thus, the section came into being and had its first meeting as such in 1879, with about a dozen members. Dr. Bolling A. Pope of New Orleans was chairman and Dr. Eugene Smith of Detroit was secretary." It should read, "In 1878 Dr. X. C. Scott of Ohio again presented the proposal, and it was adopted. Thus, the section came into being and had its first meeting as such immediately thereafter in 1878. Dr. Herman Knapp of New York was elected chairman, and Dr. X. C. Scott of Ohio was elected secretary."
