The following journals, now defunct, have played more or less important parts in the development of ophthalmology in this country: American Journal ofOphthalmology (1884-1917), Ophthalmic Record (1891-1917), Annals of Ophthalmology (1892-1917), Ophthalmology (1904-1916), Ophthalmic Literature (1911-1922), and American Journal of Physiological Optics(1920-1926). The American Journal of Ophthalmology, an entirely new journal, with an old name and with Edward Jackson as editor, took the place of thethree journals discontinued in 1917.
