As noted in another column of the present issue, Mr. and Mrs. Harold F. McCormick, of Chicago, have given a considerable sum of money for the establishment of an institution for the investigation and the treatment of infectious diseases. We made an announcement of this gift some weeks ago, but at that time we were not permitted to give the name of the family, or any of the particulars. The terms of the gift confine the immediate activities of the institution to scarlet fever and allied problems. A board of trustees, the majority of whom are medical men, has been appointed, an organization effected, and the preparations are under way for the carrying on of work in rented quarters. Professor Hektoen has been selected director, and this is a guarantee that the work done at the Institute will be of the highest order and of scientific worth.
