This volume contains the articles which the author contributed to the Journal of the Indiana State Medical Association during 1909-1911 while he was chairman of the committee on necrology. There is an interesting introduction by Dr. Brayton of Indianapolis. The chapters on the early medical history of Vincennes and Indiana are full of valuable historical material, as are the succeeding chapters dealing with the early history of various localities. There are chapters on the state society, on epidemics and health laws, war history, and an alphabetical list of deceased physicians, together with biographical notices in a number of instances. Pictures of a number of the more prominent physicians are inserted. As a source for reliable historical material, Dr. Kemper's book will acquire an increasing value as years go on. The example he has set for state medical history should be followed in other states.
