On pages 568 to 571 will be found a table showing the distribution of students of each college by states. The influence of the proximity of the medical school is seen in the fact that states which have medical colleges have more students in proportion to the population than those which have none. Only three states contributed over two thousand students: New York, 2,423; Illinois, 2,084; Pennsylvania, 2,022. Four states contributed over one thousand students, but less than two thousand: Missouri, 1,138; Ohio, 1,065; Massachusetts, 1,019; Texas, 1,012. Iowa contributed 916 students, and Indiana, 881. The fewest students (9) came from Arizona. Wyoming and Nevada each contributed 13 students; New Mexico, 19; Montana, 30; Idaho, 37; Delaware, 48; Utah, 68; North Dakota, 70, and South Dakota, 93.
