The Hall of Fame, which is to be the American Westminster Abbey, has received its first score and a half of inmates by the suffrages of the 100 judges selected from among college presidents and jurists. The results thus far are interesting in several points of view. There is hardly anyone whose opinion is worth anything who will not, in view of the names selected from and those selected, find something to criticise. As physicians we have a grievance in that, while several eminent men had been suggested, not one of our profession was deemed worthy of a place in this Walhalla. The statement is made on good authority that this is due to the light vote cast for any physician by the chief justices on the jury, and the fact is a commentary on the plan of giving such matters to the decision of members of an elective judiciary.
