To the Editor:  —On or about May 1, we are scheduled to open our new American Medical Society club rooms, situated on Universitätsstrasse 11, adjacent to the university and clinics. These new quarters are larger and more representative than the old premises, which were closed by Nazi decree in 1941. In the years between 1904 and 1941, over 20,000 English speaking postgraduates enjoyed the facilities and amenities provided within the former A. M. A. of Vienna club quarters. During that time members enjoyed a comfortable and adequate library, which contained most of the then recent medical volumes and periodicals. The new club rooms have been designed with very special attention to the library. Space for over 4,000 books has been provided. Unfortunately, but very few rather outdated books are presently available.Many thousands of former A. M. A. "life-members" will surely remember the hours they spent in the old library
