In commemoration of the centennial of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and the quadricennium of that most effective division, the Registry of Ophthalmic Pathology, letters were solicited from a number of persons who played significant roles in setting up the Registry. The correspondents were given no direction other than to emphasize pertinent anecdotes that might have escaped official documentation.
To the Editor:
—Memories of the early years of the Registry of Ophthalmic Pathology are gratifying. It is with pride that we look at the Registry today and consider its tremendous contributions to ophthalmology and to the welfare of ophthalmic patients—not only in the United States but all over the world. Comparing its adult accomplishments with its unpretentious beginning, I am convinced that anything can be achieved by devotion of selfless people.As so often happens after the initial burst of enthusiasm is spent, only dedicated devotion and dogged determination
