Although not a member of the medical profession, the author has acquired a real sympathy and understanding of medical men and their problems through her contact with medical writings and men in her professional work. After a general discussion of medical schools and societies in America, especially those in the state of New York, she devotes about half of her writing to Rochester and Monroe County. Her familiarity with local records has enabled her to write intelligently of the progress of local medicine and of local medical societies. She has graphically related the story of the early struggles and discouragements in efforts to secure a permanent home for a scientific society, free from political affiliation, built about a medical library, and furnishing a center for all medical activities and a place for the meetings of all local medical societies. This was finally accomplished in the present Rochester Academy of Medicine.
