After all the superlatives are exhausted, the Atlantic City session arises to demand additional ones. Never in the history of medicine has there been such an assemblage of physicians, and never before such a wealth of material for their interest and instruction. Some 9,764 doctors registered their attendance in Atlantic City, 1,295 more than registered at the great session of 1935, the high mark up to the present. Moreover, the session in Atlantic City in 1935 was graced by the presence of 303 visitors from Canada who did not contribute to the mark of the present occasion. Every hotel on the boardwalk was filled to capacity and most of the visitors remained throughout the entire week.
In the House of Delegates, affairs of science and of government commanded the attention to such an extent that several extra sessions of the representative body were necessary to complete the tasks before it.
