To the Editor:
—In a recent publication of the Harrower Company, an article appeared captioned "Harrower and Engelbach." This takes unfair advantage of the late Dr. William Engelbach. He not only would have resented but also clearly and definitely refuted any such association. I feel that my duty is to repudiate this form of advertising, and in so doing I am but voicing the resentment of his numerous medical friends, former students and associates.A major portion of Dr. Engelbach's life was devoted to teaching the general profession sound diagnostic and therapeutic endocrine medicine, in opposition to the illogical claims of hyperenthusiastic physicians and unscrupulous pharmaceutic houses. His medical prestige was self earned. He was never in accordance with this man's theories nor could he condone his methods of advertising to the profession.
