This special number of the Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine consists of ten essays written as a tribute to the late John P. Peters by former students in the department of internal medicine at Yale University. The topics covered are those to which Dr. Peters devoted much attention and include acid-base equilibrium, fluid and electrolyte balance, and metabolism of fats and carbohydrates. There is also an introductory appreciation of Dr. Peters and a complete bibliography of his works. The contributions are unusually detailed and should be of special interest to physicians working in the areas of metabolic diseases.
