A volume of five hundred and one pages published in 1909 traced the history of this distinguished medical society from 1817 to 1909. The present volume offers a continuation until recent times and supplements some of the earlier materials. In 1911 the Medical Society of the District of Columbia and the Medical Association of the District of Columbia amalgamated. There are chapters about the contribution to World War I, economic problems and records of the officers of the society and its publications, as well as a complete record of membership.
