Dr. Poul Iversen, physician in chief, Third Medical Department, Kommunehospitalet, Cophenhagen, should feel proud of the progress and work of his many pupils. As a clinical teacher he established one of the few "scientific schools" in Sweden. As a tribute to their teacher and colleague, his students and associates have published a memorial supplement to Acta medica Scandinavica which contains 43 papers on a wide variety of clinical and laboratory problems in medicine. Most of these papers are written in English; a few are in German.

The publication of tributes of this sort to outstanding teachers is a nice gesture of respect and affection, particularly when it is done at a time when the recipient can appreciate it.
