The Chairman of the Section on Pathology and Bacteriology of the American Medical Association in his address at St. Paul, which address appeared in our issue of November 30, used the following words: "The possibilities for careers in pathology and bacteriology in this country are rapidly equaling in opportunity and reward those of older countries and of other sciences in this country." The present volume is an evidence of the truth of this statement, for it shows that not a few Americans have not only chosen for themselves these careers but that they are utilizing the opportunites offered and are already making for themselves the reputation that is no small part of the reward that comes to laborers in science. Many of the collaborators are men who are devoting their entire time to the teaching of pathology and to investigations in this field and whose work is already well known.
