To the Editor:—  Lawson Tait was born on May 1, 1845. Arrangements are being made in Birmingham, England, where his life's work was done, to celebrate his centenary in 1945.We should be grateful for any matter of interest concerning Lawson Tait from American medical men, many of whom visited him at the Crescent, Birmingham, in the latter years of last century and by whom credit for his pioneer work in abdominal surgery was generously given.It is hoped to arrange a meeting of the profession in Birmingham and perhaps also to arrange a small exhibition representative of his life and writings.
