Abstract

To the Editor:—  "But in science the credit goes to the man who convinces the world, not to the man to whom the idea first occurs" (EDITORIALS194:1006, 1965; and W. S. Atkinson, LETTERS195:970, 1966) may be found in Sir Francis Darwin's first Galton lecture, published in Eugenics Review6:1, 1914 (p 9, paragraph 5).Sir William Osler, in his remarks made on presenting the original papers of W. T. G. Morton to the Royal Society of Medicine on May 15, 1918 (Proc Roy Soc Med 11: 65, 1917-1918, p 66, paragraph 2) credits Darwin properly.Harvey Cushing is ambiguous in his Osler biography and Bartlett is incorrect.
