This beautifully bound and illustrated volume commemorates one hundred years of public service by members of the St. Louis Medical Society, which grew out of a meeting of seven physicians on Christmas day 1835. Today there are over 1,100 members and the society owns its own building and one of the best medical libraries in the country. The book is dedicated to the ninetieth annual session of the American Medical Association, which met in St. Louis last May. The American Medical Association had previously met in St. Louis several times, the first meeting having been in 1854, the second in 1873 and the third in 1886, three years after The Journal was founded. In 1919, when Dr. William H. Welch was president, the American Medical Association met in St. Louis and again in 1922, when for the first time the address of the incoming president was broadcast over the radio.
