It is eminently fitting that the fortieth annual meeting of the Kentucky State Medical Society should have been held in the historic town of Harrodsburg —the oldest in the State. One of the largest meetings in its history was held there on the 12th, 13th and 14th of June, under the Presidency of Dr. J. B. Marvin, of Louisville. Within a few miles of there, in 1809, was born McDowell, the father of ovariotomy. Harrodsburg, itself, is the birthplace of three of the society's honored members: Drs. John G. Cecil, Ap. Morgan Vance, and L. S. McMurtry.
