To the Editor:—
I have read Dr. Holcomb's communication in The Journal, April 29, with regard to the formation of a section on medical history in the Association. I agree wholeheartedly that the Association should interest itself in medical history both old and new. Santayana said "He who cannot remember history is condemned to repeat it." Such self-evident truth is often forgotten by busy men, but it should be the business of the American Medical Association to remember history as well as make it.
