Dr. Thomas Addis Emmet of New York has been invested with the insignia of Knight Commander of the Order of St. Gregory the Great. This was recently conferred on him by the Pope for the success of his labors during a long life in saving women from suffering and in making life happier for a class of patients whose existence had become a continued discomfort.

Dr. Emmet's first professional recognition, received nearly forty years ago, was an honorary membership in the Berlin Obstetric Society, conferred just after the publication of his work in 1868 on "Vesicovaginal Fistula from Parturition and Other Causes." This was followed very shortly by his election to membership in the Medical Society
