Last week we announced the merger at Cincinnati of the Miami Medical College and the Medical College of Ohio which promises so much for the future of medical education in that city and state. This is the eleventh merger of medical colleges which has taken place in less than three years, during which time twenty-three of these institutions have united their forces, leaving nine larger and stronger ones. In Indiana five colleges have finally been welded into one, in Kansas four were merged into one, and in Kentucky four into two, while in Missouri, in Ohio at Columbus, in Minnesota, and now again in Ohio at Cincinnati, two colleges in each instance merged into one. In every instance these mergers have registered a desire on the part of the faculties for higher educational standards, and the manner in which personal interests have been set aside that better institutions might result
